I took this photo during a rare moment walking when the sun had risen.
I saw yet another shooting star about a week ago just before the sun rose. It was over the ocean more westerly than the previous two. This time I was facing it directly and could trace the streak across the sky. It was a long streak of light, it’s origin was a slightly thicker light tapering towards the end. Like the others it was just a brief moment…which I guess makes these moments all that more magical.

Moonlight Adventures

Gouache studies done during my moonlight excursions.

During my moonlight walks there’s a beauty beyond compare to anything I’ve seen during the day. There’s a kind of magic in it. Some sights are really breathtaking…I saw a shooting star just upon starting my walk about a week ago. It was over the ocean, towards my south. This is the second I’ve seen. In fact the first time I saw one it was in that same place. This shooting star was different from the first as it wasn’t merely a streak of light…I saw a shape with a long tail of light. Then it appeared to slow for a moment as it entered the atmosphere and seemed to then disappear, assumably disintegrating. Maybe it was space junk. In any case it was very cool to see— and in fact, I said just that right after seeing it.

Travel Sketching


I had 15 minutes to sketch before the library opened.
