Space Station Sighting Sunday Night

You might have to strain your eyes to see it in the photo. The space station sighting on Sunday night. The little white dot to the left,over the neighbors house roof, is the space station. Traveling 4.7 miles per second. Erika’s dad knew what time to see it in the sky, thanks to an app he has.

It tells him where and when to see satellites and such in the night sky. It was really bright. Although it was over Sunset Beach Florida when we saw it, we were standing in Columbus, Ohio.

My iPhone was the camera.

TOUR GUIDE

Pink Elephant on a Lawn

Saw this pink elephant all lit up on a lawn as I drove the grandkids home from swimming practice. I drove around the block to try to get s better photo on the phone and the kids groaned. I thought it was blogworthy.

Long Winter’s Night

Relaxing by the fire Christmas night. The first day of Christmas. One day seems sufficient.

Grandson Charlie turned 2 1/2 on Christmas Day. He and his family came Christmas afternoon for dinner. We had a nice time together.

ST. MARTIN’S DAY in Schoenberg-Berlin

 

St. Martin’s Day

at 5:00 PM -St. Matthias Church in Schoenberg neighborhood, Berlin. ( Sunset was at 4:20)

I saw the announcement on Sunday

The church bells rang out for more than 5 minutes.

First there was a little play telling the story of St. Martin and singing hymns about St. Martin.

517C8677-94AA-478C-9F78-076D68270E94THE congregation filled with children went outside to follow St.Martin riding on the horse. A companion horse trotted behind. The children carried paper lanterns, some with candles but many with tiny LED or flashlight or tealights inside.  More singing and walking in the procession to Winterfeld Platz.
