Sky Report

Sorry gang, today just was not a great day to look at the sky. Just kidding, it always is! There was some slight overcast today, but that is no reason to dislike it. A seasoned veteran will know that an overcast sky just needs to be examined more. For instance, you will notice that fledgling cloud in the lower center frame. Ordinarily, that would not be anything special, but the plainness of the backdrop really brings out those darker notes. A cozy sky to kick off exam week, what could be better? 6.8/10

The tiny wisp of a cloud we observed yesterday appears to have matured into a full-blown specter. Little bit more color this time around, along with a hint of checkering near the top. The continuous flow of the vapor mass creates a lively sense of motion, enough so that the image may look like a babbling brook to the right eyes. It gently ebbs and flows, nestling up against the trees that form its bank, wandering into someone else’s photo. 7.5/10

Quite a turbulent sky we have had today. I do not know if anyone watched it for a bit, but boy, were they moving. By the time I checked to see if this photo had come out okay, that large formation coming in from the top left had already gone out of frame. Despite the blistering speed (or maybe because of it), today’s sky was cool and refreshing. The central piece of this portrait is that dwindling Northwest formation; the one I mentioned earlier. Accompanying are several smatterings of misty clouds, which give the image of ducklings following a mother goose. Very nice. 8.1/10

Much as the anxiety and nervousness of exam week leads to the euphoria of spring break, the gray masses that have been haunting our sky chose to go elsewhere, leaving behind a radiant blue. I am not certain of the exact nature of that color gradient, but dubbing it “Inverse Ocean” seems appropriate. Also, readers may be interested to learn that when you flip the picture, the sky looks like a mountain. Neat! I’ll be away for break, but expect to see more of our beautiful celestial ceiling when we return. 8.2/10
