Short Day Sunrise with Wires

The sun now sleeps in as late as I generally do. At about 6:30 am the winter sky behind Haleakala begins to lighten. The sun still has to make it over the top of the 10,000 foot summit before sunrise is official for me.














The dark side of the house still waits for the arrival of blue skies, but the clouds have captured some early light. The amount of activity my camera seems to capture in the skies above me that I am completely oblivious to until I look at the pictures on the computer has been astounding. What is that bright white dot in the morning sky?














There is another UFO in the sky in a photo in the post below. It wasn't there when I aimed the camera. My garden is largely organic and the insect population is healthy and robust. When the sun is at a low angle and you focus your attention on the empty space that is the air a veritable whirlwind of living activity is revealed.

Horton Heard the Who.
Sometimes when you look
You can see them too.

No sunrise for me -- ouch. That's like kryptonite (sp?) for me. Sunset, on the other hand, gives me a rush of energy.

What do you think the bright white spot could be?

To me the white spot looks like a feather floating to earth.

Anyone else care to do the Rorschach Test?
