    Could you explain this phenomenon from a picture my friend sent from your area today? (red tide? toxic spill?)

    By pure coincidence, I went to a training class a couple weeks ago to become certified to work at a marine observatory right near there. That is likely not "red tide" or a spill, and is very likely to be Noctiluca scintillans, a harmless, very colorful dinoflagellate. It comes in gold and green colors too, and some of the year is all over the place here.

    Just took a shot out the window, looking down into the sound, by the oyster farm. There's a lot of it today:

    Need more light on that back side there, LOL.
    Although I think I like Alan's telescope photo's a little bit more (James Webb telescope). I am intrigued with what we might learn from it.

    I sent Elon a note the other day to see about getting one of my strobes up there, but I haven't heard back yet. Soon though!
