Peeping Dawn | October 8, 2014, 7:12 am

Astronomical sunrise occurred at 6:48 am. Twenty-four minutes later, at 7:12 am, the sun peeped above the high ridge along the eastern shore. That long delay for the sun to top the ridge will shorten with the passing weeks, as the sunrise moves southerly to a lower part of the ridge. This day, the sun rose directly opposite my window, at east-southeast. It was October 8, 2014.

Thirty-five minutes later, glancing out the window, I happened to catch this magnificent, post-dawn cloud formation – a cloud head devouring the sun. It was too good to pass up.
