Skywatch

Growing up in the flatland, far from the big city, the tallest building in town was the grain elevator. You could see it for miles. Every Christmas they would put a star at the very top. Decades later, the star still gleams on frosty winter nights, a sign that welcomes home weary travelers as another star did years ago. Too see other skies check out Skywatch, a weekly meme of skies from around the world.

Pretty. I like the star, the little lights that are lower, and the pretty, calm sky.

Nice to have a clear sign of home. It shows very brightly, even when it's not completely dark.

Wow, that looks so much like the place I grew up, it's eerie! Beautiful shot, Bev!
