At the Transport Museum in Sinsheim Germany they have a Concorde and a Tupolev 144 mounted on the roof.

The Concorde's engines are stacked in a line of 4 inside the Museum.

I won't bore you with the same eclipse photos you've seen from a million other people the last week. Here's the Milky Way over SE Oklahoma, shot in the early morning hours, about 10 hours prior to the eclipse.

Shot through the bus windshield yesterday ('Deadhead', no passengers) at the storm clouds forming ahead of me as I travel to the east. Not 'My Best', but thunderstorms have always held a certain fascination for me, and these were quite impressive, and potentially destructive. The bugs on the windshield are a bonus.

This was the first 'summer style' storm system of the season.

Hail, high winds, constant lighting, and a deluge of driving rain at a 45 degrees angle. Surprisingly, no tornadoes (That I know of, so far).

As for cloud photos, this one is my bestest best cloud photo ever, even if the quality isn't so great, the subject definitely is...and it also has bug splat on the windshield.

A series of spectacular lenticular clouds that had formed in the wind currents 'downstream' from mountains to the west (right) of this view.

It was taken maybe 7-8 years ago as I was driving a Southbound bus towards Cheyenne, Wyoming.

'Ghost Biker In The Sky'

People who see this interesting cloud image I took...and yes, through a bus windshield again, think that it must be a photoshopped image, but I assure you that it existed naturally just as you see it. The fact that it was taken not very far from Sturgis, SD adds to its surreal weirdness.
