Two days late for Halloween, but tonight we got partial clearing of the coastal clouds with a bright moon to boot. I took a bag of trash out and saw these odd, somewhat parallel stripes of clouds:
That’s a pretty good representation of what I saw, except they seemed spookier being lit up by the moonlight like that. Enhanced for brightness and contrast:
It was almost like there was a humongous hand up in the sky, reaching down to grab me.
Which, if I’m wrong about the atheism bit, could in fact happen at just about any time!
