SEEN AT SUNSET: USS Nimitz off West Seattle, outbound

5:10 PM: Thanks for the tips, and to Alex Orland for the photo! At sunset, the Bremerton-homeported aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) was seen heading northbound past West Seattle, two and a half weeks after its most-recent return.

ADDED 8:01 PM: Thanks to James Tilley for this photo: shows the Nimitz is about to pass Port Angeles. It’s been out on training voyages getting ready for its next major deployment.

    Nice photograph.  I wish everyone could live in peace without the need to spend billions on the Military Industrial Complex!

      What do you mean? Just be a sitting duck? My son is serving in the Navy. Every nation needs a ready defense.
