Some people might be surprised by this post’s headline or think that it was ironic but no, it’s not. It’s summer now and that means hot days and nice blue skies, even in Beijing. Over the weekend, the weather had been great in Beijing for three straight days (maybe more since I can’t quite remember what Wednesday or Thursday were like) and there’ve been some beautiful skies and very interesting cloud patterns, even at night. Today’s weather is a bit cloudy but it’s still a great day since Germany won the World Cup this morning (China time), beating Argentina 1-0. As you can tell, I am a German fan. Sunday noon. A few hours later the sky darkened and there was some rain. Saturday Friday afternoon
However, the most surprising sky was Saturday night when there was a full moon and misty clouds, which I’d never seen at night. I don’t normally look to the heavens at night but I did so by chance on Saturday and it was really nice. See the photos below to know what I’m talking about and be assured there was no Photoshopping, not that I have Photoshop or can do much, or any other editing.
Even the early morning has yielded some fine sky scenery- this is at 5am on Wednesday, at halftime of the World Cup semifinal when Germany demolished Brazil 7-1.
