Autumn Begins

Last Day of Summer, Prospect Park

We have warm, clear weather for the first day of Fall. There’s a huge Harvest Moon, I tried to photograph it– but it came out looking like a blurry dot.

Here’s the State House, with a train arriving at the station.

I joined with some friends to observe the Autumnal Equinox by playing drums at the Temple to Music at Roger Williams Park. Through the marble columns we watched the moon rise over the  pond, followed by the planet Jupiter, an evening star.

Jupiter was so bright that it left a trail of light on the pond, next to the bright sparkles of the reflected moon. What a show– and for free.  Tonight the moon is full, Jupiter and Uranus visible below, and looks like it will be clear. Get out and see it if you can.

  1. Is that white stuff smoke in the picture?

  2. The train is not supposed to produce that much smoke.

  3. Yeah, it made a screeching noise. I was in Prospect Park and heard noise followed by smoke. Brakes?

  4. Sheesh-you people obviously have never been around trains up close.
    That isn’t normal-must’ve been brakes or something.It defintely had to be coming off an older diesel job.If it were off the diesel engine itself,it would be some dark,nasty stuff.Diesels don’t malfunction neatly.
