SDSU Sky Watch Friday ...

I typically find beautiful Architecture in this part of the world in the buildings along main streets of our small towns.

I visited the SDSU Campus yesterday and when the tower came out of the clouds at me I had to do a double take and say "whoa" ...
Built in 1929, the University’s most recognized symbol is the Campanile Tower. It was funded by Charles L. Coughlin, an electrical engineering graduate. Coughlin was president of Briggs & Stratton Corporation. Steven Briggs, inventor of the Briggs & Stratton engine, was a graduate as well.

The university's Dairy Plant invented Cookies & Cream ice cream : ) SDSU is also home to the Lady Jacks. More to come on them.
What else is out there, up in the sky? Find out at Sky Watch Friday around the world.


  1. Excellent and very nice photo.

    Regards and best wishes

  2. That is an interesting editing of your photo - I like what you have done - and the angle of it is great ! :) Well done

  3. Agree... wonderful editing, and a really interesting photo!

  4. Nice shot! It'd be fun to travel around collecting photos of campaniles. One time back in high school, a bunch of us climbed to the top of the UNI campanile in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Happy skywatching!
