Sky Watch Friday - Inconstantia

My chariot
The time for preparing for another Sky Watch seems to have come round again rather quickly, and having had my computer crash two weeks ago has not made life any easier.  I am having to share a computer at the moment, but thankfully I have a flash drive which has been a real help, a lot of my photo's are already on it, and I can download the latest ones to it.  This past week has seen big changes, from blue skies, cirrus and cumulus to black storm clouds and lightning, to dramatic and gorgeous sunsets.  Unfortunately I didn't capture any lightning.  Click to enlarge photo's.

The first are especially sharp captures and the ones I like best. By the way bears are just part of our life. They are attracted to backyards by fruit trees, and by garbage, which people insist on planting, and putting out early, although they have lived here for years.

Wonderful shots!
I love the second one that the clouds look like white puffy spaceships hovering over the ground.

You brought up a good point about my Granddaughter maybe seeing a picture of someone sitting on a crescent moon. One hung in her nursery till she was two. Maybe she remembers. :)
Love your blog!
