This YouTube video contains two short clips. The first video clip was taken in Lafayette Park, located just north of the White House, as the march was just starting. The second video clip was taken about 15 minutes later at the corner of 15th & New York Ave as the march continued its way through the streets of Washington, DC.

At approximately 8:30pm on Friday, January 9th, 2009, I was approaching the corner of E Street and 8th Street NW, Washington, DC and noticed that people were waiting on the corner & a police woman was blocking traffic. When reached the corner I heard a murmur from a woman nearby saying that it was president-elect Barack Obama who was about to drive by. Right after she said this, I pulled out my camera and recorded president-elect Barack Obama’s motorcade driving west on E street.
I expect to see this motorcade more often in the coming weeks & months.

Since there is still a week left and I’m adding this entry, it means that my experiment is over. I’ll have the results posted later….

This evening marks the first time I’ve seen the planet Mercury in night sky. What makes this extra beautiful is Mercury, the smallest planet in the solar system, was next to Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system. I have now have seen all of wandering stars known to the ancients.
Below I decided to digitally zoom in as far as I could and see what the time-lapse photograph would look like:
