Friday afternoon I was sitting in some heavy traffic when I spotted a blimp in the sky. I couldn't read what it said on the side but I knew I had to get a shot. I was way back in long row of cars waiting to turn left so I knew I was going to be sitting there for a while so I whipped out the camera, extended the telephoto and took a few shots out the window. I had to be quick so I managed to cut the tail fin off in both shots but, at least I got it.
When I got to my house and pulled into the driveway, I heard a motor noise and looked up in time to see it passing over my house so I quickly grabbed the camera and took another shot.
When I downloaded the photos and saw that it said "Cloud Lab" on the side, I did a quick search on the internet and found out that this is a scientific lab on a month-long journey across America gathering information on what lives in the clouds among other things. It's sponsored by the BBC (British Broadcasting Company). Click on the link to find out a little more.
One thing is for certain, there weren't any clouds in the sky over Phoenix on Friday.
