SKYWATCH FRIDAY – TWO SUNSETS (Lake Erie)
Spring has arrived here on the north shore, but it’s still being a little shy about it. Days alternate between mild and optimistically sunny to chilly, overcast and rainy. One gray evening a few days ago, the sun found two thin places in the veil of clouds, creating the illusion of two sunsets, one gold and one pink, happening at once, as if we’d been transported to some faraway planet in a binary star system.
For the musically inclined, here is LINK to a beautifully done video montage of inter-stellar images paired with the music of Paul Kantner and Jefferson Starship. The song is the tender rock ballad, "Have You Seen the Stars Tonight" - reprised from the 1970 concept album, Blows Against the Empire, and recorded live at Kantner's 65th birthday in 2006.
