SkyWatch Friday no. 45.

This picture is taken from Davids Tower in The Old City of Jerusalem in february 2008. We look to the Mount of Olives, where Jesus was taken to heaven - while blessing his disiples. "And a cloud took him out of their sight". It is built a church (to the left of middle of the picture) on the place they think it happened. At least it was some place in the area. I think it is good to have a visual picture of it. And as christians we also expect Jesus to come back and set his feet on the Mount of Olives - as he has told us.
Happy Ascension Day!
