Mother Nature Playing Tricks

A little after nine in the evening last Friday, I was walking through my living room and was amazed at the sunlight coming through the window.   But how was that possible?  The window faces east.

I grabbed the camera and went out on the deck to take these pictures of the eastern sky.

These two photos were taken within a minute of each other.  The storm clouds to the north, seen below, were moving through.
Alas, we saw none of the rain in my neighborhood.  Despite the forecasts, I did not get rain until early this morning.  And it really poured down later this morning.
I am not an expert at all in matters relating to the sky, but my guess is that 'sunshine' was due to the moon rising.  A neighbor said it was absolutely beautiful on Saturday night.  I was too busy complaining to the Police Dept about two fireworks shows to notice.

  1. I love these pictures and I know how dramatic it can be when the sun..or moon (??) hits the clouds. In your second picture, the darker cloud on the left hand side looks like a child praying
