Skywatch Friday Happy Birthday (ish) USA

There were many dates that could have been the “Birthday” of the United States of America. The date of July Fourth was finally settled upon and this was how it looked from my front porch in 2012.

A sherbet colored sunset closed an oddly cool day in Southern California (upper 70s).

The evening was filled with Civic fireworks from a nearby park  with first a burst! then the afterglow of the big finale.

All under the watchful eye of a full man in the Moon.
