I'm starting a thread for a challenge of the day during these uncertain times. It's just a way for us to connect with each other and take our thoughts away from what is happening around us. It's kind of a (dare I say) mindfulness and grounding activity for each day. I hope it's a bit of fun for some of them and a way to ground and be aware of what is still around us.
The idea is for members to post whatever they feel comfortable with. It could be photos, photos of drawings, written descriptions or creative writing and poetry. It could be music as well. The key part is to keep in mind your anonymity at all times. Please don't post anything that would identify you. For that reason I'm trying to think of challenges that are personal but keep us anonymous.
Lastly I know I'll run out of ideas. Please feel free to add your own challenges here as well.

The challenge for today is to go outside once or as many times as you like and look at the sky. Take a photo or write a piece to post about your observations of today's sky. It will be interesting to see the differences in the sky in Autumn on one given day at different locations (not to be named) around Australia.

This is from my back doorstep. A strangely overcast day with patches of bright blue sky.

Great Idea @Teej
I am up for it
I took an unusual photo on Saturday morning - not long before dawn - it's Mercury rising
I have been taking photos of some of the planets which I have posted on my Guide to the Night Sky but I haven't posted this one yet
Here goes and let's see how it comes up - actually it does - if people have a touch screen and can expand the photo the crescent shape of the planet at this time of the month can be clearly seen
I am thrilled with this photo

I'm happy to join @Teej and really glad you thought up a daily challenge.
I'm really excited to get that shot of Mercury - it's really hard to find most of the time
And that's a great pic of the sky you've posted too - I have some great photos of clouds too
