Sometimes, when you live in Cocoa Beach, you will see dragons in the sky.

What you are seeing in these images is not what I was seeing with my eyes.

Not even close, in fact. There is much alteration, distortion, lack of fidelity.

In no way do these pictures capture the least essence of the living, breathing, glowing, creature in the sky that appeared above my head this morning.

Words. Goddamned words. They are worthless in the extreme.

It is the best I can do. Please accept my apologies.

We live in an age of miracles and wonder.

My camera was in a forgiving mood this morning, and though it captured nothing, it captured something.

I was shooting hand-held at impossible settings, full manual mode, having no idea what I was getting, unable to stop, unable to check my results, winging it, on the fly, no way to know, no way to tell.

The moon was bright, and high. The glowing creature flew right past Venus, the brightest planet. Sirius, the brightest star, was also in plain sight, and none of them could hold a candle to this thing.

I'm finished before I start.

And then the sun came up.
