Two Suns in the Sunset

sunset060325.jpg

Sunset, March 25, 2006. This is an interesting version of a sun pillar; the extended pillar is obscured from view by the presence of lower-lying clouds in the foreground. So rather than a pillar of light extending upward, you get what looks to be a second sun. I've been semi-conscious today at best (the flu is shaking me around like a rag doll, it is, and made me sleep through most of the afternoon), so I'm glad I happened to look out the window and catch this.

Heh. Good catch.

Endor was based on Ohio?!

John Scalzi | March 25, 2006 08:01 PM

I think you may be thinking of Tatooine.

Get well soon, John!

Looks like the human race is run...

Better get out there and check the evaporators. ;) Sorry you're not feeling well.

the human race is run

It's like the new "All your base are belong to us."

Next time you need a book cover, you can save yourself some money on the artist....

This is off-topic, but I started reading Old Man's War yesterday and so far (about 5 chapters in) it is very good, very enjoyable.

I liked the reference to the Ghost Brigades. I suppose you were already planning that book..?

John Scalzi | March 26, 2006 12:09 PM

No, not really. It turned out to be useful when I was asked for a sequel, however.

Ah, cool. Sure made me smile when I read it, though.
