Look Up at the Sky Day

14 Apr


 Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –


April 14th. is Look Up at the Sky Day.  Bet you didn’t know this was a holiday did you?  Today, take a few minutes to go outside and check it out.  Sit on the ground, lay on the ground – have a picnic, or sit at a table.  While you’re there, check out the sky.  Just look up and see what you can find.  Are there clouds?  If so, what shapes can you make out of them?  Are there planes or birds?  And don’t just keep this activity to day time hours, check the sky out at night.  Do you see the moon?  Is it full or covered?  Do you see the stars?

Have a fun time at it and why not invite your humans to do the same.  Take a little time to sit, breathe and look at the wonder of the world.

    I went to the lake and sat on a low watching the water and it was amazing.

      YES! I sat outside and watched my sky a little bit this morning with mom when she was having her coffee. It’s a little overcast – we are suppose to get rain today. But the wind, it was amazing! XOXO – Bacon

    We will do just that, Bacon. It’s going to be a nice morning here, around 80 degrees, so we will head out before the rain sets in. Not complaining, glad it’s rain and not snow because we are dropping more than 40 degrees tonight and getting snow tomorrow!!!!

      I was lucky enough to watch a huge orange moon go down and the beautiful sun take her place!

    It’s a perfect day for looking at the sky. There’s an eclipse tonight!

    Love and licks and the clouds will hide it, but we’ll check anyway.
