Sunrise in Wildwood, NJ on Wed. August 4, 2011

After two introductory pics of the Wildwood boardwalk entrance, I present 6 sequential pics of a beautiful sunrise I witnessed last Wednesday while on vacation. I have intentionally kept the 3rd one extra large, because a cloud in front of the Sun gave the ILLUSION of the sun being ringed like Saturn. Trust me, just like pics of mountains, the pics do not convey the actual beauty of seeing it in person.

The Sun <=== STILL kicking arse after 5 billion years, give or take a few hundred mill. May it ever be so, but, it won't. Enjoy.

Thank you, Heloise. You can also inser via the a href thing, the address into a link, like so.

Yes, Blondie, thanks I'd forgotten.There's also George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun" and The Beatles' "I'll Follow the Sun."

Why do we age and die, do you think? The sun most likely. That will nourishes us, also kills us. And OK, possibly Cosmic Rays, i.e., protons slamming through our bodies at near relativistic speeds from somewhere ... most likely from the jets of a long dead quasar. That's just a theory, don't quote me.
