SkyWatch Friday



Believe it or not, I took this picture on the same day I took all of the photos of Old City Cemetery that are being shown on my blog this week. The blimp was in town to cover the FSU football game and could be seen flying over the campus all afternoon. I couldn't believe it when it flew directly over my head. To see more fascinating skies from around the world, don't miss SkyWatch Friday.

So exciting to see the Good Year Blimp drifting effortlessly in the sky so it seems.

Happy Skywatch Friday!

I have never seen a blimp, so this was interesting!

What a terrific shot, Lois! And such lovely skies!! I was lucky enough to get a couple of shots of a blimp that flew over my son's house when I was there. Always thought it would be fun to go up in one! Hope you have a great weekend!

Great shot! I haven't seen a blimp in a long time but I used to see them all the time here in California. This is so perfectly clear and judging by the sky, a perfect day to go blimping.

Maybe they showed you on TV during the game coverage.

They are awe inspiring to see over your head. I get to see one every few years. I also get to see the hot air balloons but it is the noise of them activating their burners that causes me to look up and see them.

Tanya said...

kind of strange to see that flying over the old cemetery huh?!

John said...

It passed over us today too.

Beautiful shot.

My Skywatch, have a safe weekend!

So that's like an airship? Not just a balloon? Wow. Maybe we have them here but I don't think I've ever seen one.

Have you ever been up in one of these? I think it was in South Florida that you could buy rides...but I would not do it..

Beautifully captured!
