AT EXACTLY 11:11 A.M. on 11/11 (every Veterans Day), the sun’s rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars to form a perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States.
The monument, located in Anthem, AZ, is dedicated to honoring the service and sacrifice of the United States armed forces.
For more on the monument and its story, click here.
To all veterans, a belated but very grateful “Thank you!”

AGAIN, ONLY TWO guesses at last week’s Whatzit…and, again, both were correct. One was from Michelle Green:
This week’s Whatzit is a page from Ireland’s Book of Kells.
The second, from Lynne Hummell:
It was a long shot, so I resorted to the interwebs and within a couple of searches (art Greek man peacocks) found that this is “Christ Enthroned” from the Book of Kells. (OK, so he’s not Greek … nor was the purported artist.)
Fascinating story about the Book of Kells!
Thanks for sending the link, Lynne. Fascinating stuff and I hope others will go there to see the wonderful images.
Now…to this week’s Whatzit. This one may be too easy, but let’s see.
