I took this picture last fall when the Goodyear blimp passed directly over my head as I was going into the grocery store. It was a Saturday afternoon and the blimp was in town for a Florida State University football game that was being televised later that night. The blimp provides those panoramic shots over the stadium you see when you watch a game on TV and it usually arrives a day or two beforehand and flies around town, especially if the weather is nice. It's always fun to see, but I think this was first time I had ever seen it this close before. Click on the picture to enlarge it and you will get a better look at the pilot's cabin and the American flag on the bottom of the blimp. Linking with SkyWatch Friday.
