Sky Watch Friday - Bellefonte Courthouse
Night-time sky at the Bellefonte Court house. I took this just as it was getting dark. If you enlarge the photo you can see the fish weather vane on the top of the courthouse. I wonder how many people never notice the fish. I didn't notice until my son pointed it out to me several years ago.
Added Note: A few of you wondered why the fish was chosen on the courthouse. I did some Internet research and this site tells about a man who delivered airmail and chose the fish for the weather vane. Here's the site: About fish weather vane. Our state fish symbol is the brook trout. PA is known for good fishing.
