Clay County photo featured in FAC calendar contest

TAMPA – The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) chose this photo and 15 other photos from different Florida counties to feature in its annual calendar. The contest is open to all of Florida’s 67 counties, and folks from 52 Florida counties submitted more than 580 photos. FAC announced the winners during its Legislative Conference in Hillsborough County.

Clay County is getting spotlighted thanks to photographer Dennis T. Hoban, who captured the sight of a “space jellyfish” cloud while watching an early morning Space-X launch across the St. Johns River. The image from Clay County has won a photo contest to be featured in a statewide calendar.

Space jellyfish clouds, which resemble the translucent bodies of their namesake, are a phenomenon that occurs when the sun’s rays light up the plume of gases that a rocket leaves behind.

Founded in 1929, the Florida Association of Counties is a non-profit association representing the diverse interests of Florida’s 67 counties. The Florida Association of Counties helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians by strengthening and preserving county home rule through advocacy, education and collaboration.
