Sunrise with mammatus clouds, Pittsburgh, 29 July 2023 (photo by Kate St. John)

5 August 2023

Some amazing things were quite literally outside my window last week.

Above, nearby thunderstorms at sunrise on 29 July produced these ominous mammatus clouds.

Two days later a complete rainbow with purple arcs filled the sky. The purple is too faint to see in this photo.

It was also a week of large flying insects.

I see larger elm leaf beetles (Monocesta coryli) flying by. This one rested on my window.

And spotted lanternfly adults (Lycorma delicatula) fly higher than you’d think. Their numbers increased dramatically in the past week.

No one’s talking about wildfire smoke but something was causing Code Orange air on Thursday. Air quality improved long before sunset.
