Red Sky at Night






Sailor's Delight.
I think some lovely chickadees have already posted what they've captured of the sky last Friday night here in good old nyc: rachel, marie, elizabeth...here are the bonbon additions, fashionably late to the red sky party.
I think someone even knows what those clouds are called... grapey clusteroos (that's the scientific name)...a very inspiring sky for shnizzle.

Mammatus!

I had never heard the word until two commenters left it on my post. And an even weirder name, in Afrikaans, is apparently muistiete (pr. "maysteatuh"), which translated literally, including crudeness = mousetits.

Don't ask me.

That's one heck of a mouse.

You may be late to the party, but you know how to make an entrance

Oh so pretty....my husband loves to quote "red sky at night...." But I don't think I've ever seen one that red... :)

unbelievable! I saw it but like an idiot, I didn't take pics. Thankfully I know smart people like you.

That's so funny...I have a couple of "Red Sky Over Wegmans" pics I took on the same night. They are, however, still trapped in my camera.
