Skywatch Friday: The Sun & a cloud


Do you remember my moon shot from last week?

Well after I'd taken my shots of the moon from the back yard, I went upstairs and into the front bedroom where the low sun was still shining over the City of Manchester stadium. Taking care to use the LCD screen rather than the view-finder and not looking directly, I ended up with this picture.

So in the back we had a clear view of the moon and in the front a hazy view of the sun.

Do check out other Skywatch Friday posts at Wigger's World.

I'm heading away for the weekend so apologise in advance that'll I'll probably not be commenting on other blogs much until next week.
