SkyWatch Friday (my twelfth) -- Left from the 1980 Winter Olympics - Moscow, U.S.S.R. (now Russia) - Still used today for recreation and sport

I am sorry but we can't see very far in the sky.
Bottom picture shows the problem.

I know the pollution but still an image to be shared! Love it.

Yes Jim, I actually have four rocking chairs across the front porch to watch my sunsets.

Dang that really is a lot of pollution. That ride would scare the heck out of me though :)

Yeah, that looks like awfully polluted, smoggy sky. But great pictures though.

Hi Jim
Don't worry about the lack of Sky in these as they have their own interest... Sky Pollution is a good way to describe it.. :O)

What an interesting view ..I have never been to Moscow but I hope it is not as polluted now!

amazing ... so cool that they still use the things they built for the olympics and did not just let them decay!
I have a set of dolls that were made in the ussr and have the USSR lables in them I treasure them because of where and when they were made!

The inversion layer can be seen by the angle of the plumes on the smoke stacks. Not very nice air to breathe , but if you call it fog, it makes for nice pics.
