The air was absolutely clear yesterday afternoon and last night. Our best views (from STX) we've had in months of the other islands. Last night we could even see the clouds glowing over PR.
Same here. I'm waving at STX.
Was that you I saw waving? Hi back!
I agree. The view was amazing yesterday afternoon. Today is looking good also! Hurray!
We could see the hills or PR very clear....didnt see any lights just the outline through binocs.
what an awsume view. and st. thomas was just glowing.....the cruise ship was so clear i could see in the windows. (not)
My view of stt/stj and BVI's was great yesterday. Even better was that it was from a barstool at the Deck Bar on stx 🙂
You're right Dixie. That cruise ship was glowing big time. What a sight!
I think that today is exceptionally clear. Not sure what island I saw (maybe Vieques), but I could actually see a glimmer of a sand beach. Saw it as I was turning to go up Mafolie, above the hotel.
Did anyone on the Nothside see the cruise ship pass by late yesterday afternoon? It was a strange sight because we never see them on this side.
Loved the crystal clear air the past few days...back to ashy stuff again. Kiddo had to be picked up from school today due to coughing. My nose is starting to look like Santa's. 🙁
Ashy? why ashy?
VOG, Ash from the Montserrat volcano. Or some times it's Sahara dust, from Africa.
The ash is black grey and the dust is reddish.
The phenomenon occurs several times a year.
Is this ash, its grayish? I was wondering if it was another one of those "soupy clouds" we had a few weeks back!
CAtoSTX and cheryl96s,
The Soufriere Hills volcano in Montserrat has been very active for most of October. There have been multiple ash clouds which tend to normally blow westward in our direct ion. For more info, try www.mvo.ms/ or try spelling the whole thing out at www.montserratvolcanoobservatory.info/
They only have weekly updates from Friday to Friday unless activity is "hot". It's a cool site...not bad for a little island with a lot of guts to keep doing what they're doing.
The photographs are amazing.
Glad you got it CAtoSTX!
