We Tiberias excavation volunteers were already hard at work at 6:13 a.m. last week when suddenly everyone started running for their cameras.
I, of course, thought "For SkyWatch Friday!"
A golden sunrise over the Sea of Galilee doesn't happen every day.
Now I am back home in Jerusalem, the scene of another rising into the sky some 2,000 years ago, according to Christian belief. A Son-rise.
Your Jewish friend wishes happy Ascension Day to all you Christians who celebrate today.
