We’ve had the most spectacular and glorious sunrises the past week here in Florida. What a way to start to day!

We’ve had the most beautiful sights in the sky both day and night this week. One morning at sunrise we woke up to tall tropical clouds that seemed to glow from within. One cloud even had a rainbow in it. After midnight last night we watched a spectacular rocket blastoff. A Delta 4 rocket successfully launched two satellites into orbit at 12:52 am. Our 30 second photograph’s unusual effect is the result of light fog and a full moon. High humidity made the roar of blastoff over 60 miles away quite loud and long. Since light travels faster than sound, we saw the liftoff before we heard it.

We had a spectacular sunrise here in Florida yesterday – the colors were amazing! The peak only lasted a few minutes. There were also “hole punch” clouds in the sky. They form when an airplane passes through a supercooled cloud layer. Since the cloud’s water droplets are chilled even more by passing over the wings, the droplets freeze into ice and fall out of the sky (thus leaving a hole if the plane punched through the cloud layer, or a trail/tunnel if it flew through it).
