Daily observations at or near Two Dot Spot, written by hand on the backs of postcards that record with ink and coffee a few minutes of the earth's orbit around the sun. The cards are physically mailed from Two Dot, Montana to those who have requested them...local to local. Ruth Marie Tomlinson

6.18.12... few clouds, no wind

One piercing black cloud cuts just above the horizon through an otherwise clear sky. For a few minutes it shielded the sun, cancelling it like a strike-through. But the sun prevails as the earth turns, first illuminating the edges of that knife cloud, then breaking free of its boarders. When the sun is low in the sky, its progress is so easy to follow. It almost makes the spinning of the earth seem real.
