Sky watch Friday

The sky driving home reminded me of spring skies soon to come.
~~~~~~~
Here is how to join in:
~~~
Sharing some Note worthy information. Hope the sky is clear so we can see it.

~~

Total Lunar Eclipse
~~ On Wednesday evening, February 20th, the full Moon over the Americas will turn a delightful shade of red and possibly turquoise, too.
It's a total lunar eclipse—the last one until Dec. 2010.
~~
Stratocumulus clouds belong to the Low Cloud (surface-2000m) group. These clouds are low, lumpy, and gray. Most form in rows with the rest of the sky visible in between.
~~ To tell the difference between a stratocumulus and an altocumulus cloud, point your hand toward the cloud. If the cloud is about the size of your fist, then it is a stratocumulus cloud.
