Who started Skywatch Friday? I've seen this on a number of un-related blogs, including yesterday's Blog Of Note. Is this an international movement that I've missed? Maybe a Euro thing? And what are the rules? Do I just go outside and take a picture of the sky every Friday? Maybe I should watch the news more.

I admit I find the idea very entertaining. It's neat to see pictures of the sky from all over the world. A peak outside at my sky today will show you a crisp, eye-watering blue that goes on forever. It's hard for me to imagine that there are clouds anywhere in the world today, as Sounthern Ontario is so flat, sometimes it seems as though you can see to the ends of the earth. Somewhere on the other side of the world it's dark and people are sleeping. I know this, but it's tricky to imagine. In Australia, it's dark AND summer! How strange is it to look outside at the bright snow and know that somewhere, people are swealtering. I can't quite wrap my brain around it.

Anywhoo... happy sleeping, or whatever it is ya'll are doing, I'm off for a night of Lobster and a movie.

Hope you've had a great evening of indulgence.

That's the magic of the bloggercommunity (creepy word) I think, the contacts you have with people all over the world. The stories and the photos that are shared. I'm always astonished about the animals that feature in the Camera Critters meme. People who encounter bears on their way to work (you may be one of them). That would make the frontpage of all papers here in Holland.

Still, I feel that I'm talking to someone who's sitting next to me.

Hugs xx

Oops, I did not mean you are a bear of course. You may be one of those people I meant. Phew.

To answer your SkyWatch question...

Hi there!

Skywatch is quite a phenomenon.
Started about 2 years ago by Dot, she passed it over to Brit to manage when it reached about 100 participants, he them handed it on to the present committee @ 200+ players - now its frequently over 325 skies!!!

I used to officially play, but find it now to huge to visit, so just post my own image every Friday & view known friends that participate.

There's the boring answer to your question.
