With gratitude to the heavens

The big celestial news was, of course, at the beginning of the week when the crescent moon, Jupiter and Venus got together. I posted on Monday (different shots), too excited to wait for SkyWatch Friday.
This was the awe-inspiring beauty we all really needed to be shown, following the hard times on earth in those days.
.
Let's go see what other bloggers posted for SkyWatch Friday.

Dear Dina!
Amazing photos: the silhouettes of the plants against that awesome sky with the moon and the star.
Such sights can be very comforting and healing - I know by experience! God bless you!

It was a sight we all shared, to remind us how enormous the universe really is, and we sit on a tiny rock together in the cold. These are beautiful captures.

I took a photo also but didn't post it because yours was so much better. The funny thing is the planets here in Hawaii were BELOW the moon.

Beautiful shots! Everyone seems to have photographed the sky Monday except for me. I finally went back to work and missed the big event. :(

Maalie said...

Whta lovely pictures, with the plants in the foreground. Are they Umbellifers, I wonder?

Dina said...

Thanks, everybody, glad you enjoyed our special evening sky.

Shalom Maalie, Are my plants Umbellifers, you ask? Well, maybe. It is a new word to me. They are just common weeds around my village on the hill. I really should learn more plant names. Thanks for the name!

Maalie said...

Dina, yes I think they are, you can read more about them here .

Best wishes, Jim

Pietro said...

Dina, these are wonderful pictures for Sky Watch. Sorry I'm always late in the comments of all the blogs, but I can't follow the quickness of bloggers (!) and moreover I still have a slow connection. :-)
