SoCal-bound! Cya later Bay Area! Safe journeys xD
A smokey sunset over the city.  Looks like wildfire smoke!  There were wildfires burning up around NorCal and winds were coming in from the northerly direction.  It was another mild, late-August day this day with afternoon highs reaching up into the lower 80s.  Pic taken from around San Jose, CA.  Can’t believe that we were headed to SoCal the very next morning for our last minute summer vacation outing to Disneyland!  Scared excited feeling now lol.  (Monday around sunset, August 25, 2014; 7:40 p.m.)

Sprouting more avocados from seeds.  These seeds were soaking in water for quite a while and their roots were outgrowing the small water bottles!  So I had recently replaced 4 of the most mature seedlings into larger water bottles.  I actually `transplanted` the four into the larger containers shortly before taking the pics.  Here’s to a continued, successful growing season this year!  (Pics taken late Monday, August 25, 2014)

Sprouting and growing more avocados.  I have a nice row of avocado plants in the backyard already.  I still have quite a few more seeds soaking in water and I just planted 2 of the seeds into new containers.  Here’s to a continued, successful growing season this year!  I wish I had my own greenhouse… (Pics taken late Monday, August 25, 2014)

Jupiter, Venus and the waning crescent moon had formed an amazing cosmic isosceles triangle around dawn over the vast Central Valley!  It was an awesome sight!  I had a mini outing to see a spectacular triangular conjunction of Jupiter, Venus and the thin crescent moon around dawn.  I had planned to view the conjunction around home but morning low clouds had obscured the view.  I had no choice but to do a great escape from the clouds and headed to the Central Valley.  This was a rare conjunction so I was determined to go!  I had left home around 4:30-ish a.m.  My final viewing point was along the Mountain House Pkwy, located around the western side of Tracy, CA.  The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in this part of the sky only happens once every 12 years.  That being said, I hope you guys had a chance to view this triangular conjunction of these 3 heavenly bodies!  Pic taken from around the western edge of Tracy, CA, along Mountain House Parkway.  Jupiter is actually just below the Beehive star cluster.  Also, if you look very closely, I may have also captured one or more of Jupiter’s moons!  (Saturday around dawn, August 23, 2014; 5:26 a.m.)

Couple pics of an awesome cosmic show over the vast Central Valley before sunrise.  It was a trio conjunction of Jupiter, Venus and Luna!  I had a mini outing to see a spectacular triangular conjunction of Jupiter, Venus and the thin crescent moon around dawn.  I had planned to view the conjunction around home but morning low clouds had obscured the view.  I had no choice but to do a great escape from the clouds and headed to the Central Valley.  This was a rare conjunction so I was determined to go!  I had left home around 4:30-ish a.m.  My final viewing point was along the Mountain House Pkwy, located around the western side of Tracy, CA.  The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in this part of the sky only happens once every 12 years.  That being said, I hope you guys had a chance to view this triangular conjunction of these 3 heavenly bodies!  Pics taken from around the western edge of Tracy, CA, along Mountain House Parkway.  (Saturday around dawn, August 23, 2014)
