One Mid-Summer Night
Date: June 15, 2011, Bergen, Norway, just before midnight.
I noticed something strange. First, I noticed it was a gorgeous night, then I realized that the chunk missing from the moon was odd. Could it be... an eclipse?
This is more like the lighting at midnight in mid-June at 60º N latitude.
I googled it, and sure enough, it was the end of an eclipse. Being surrounded by mountains, and the sun going down around 11 PM made this an event I almost missed.
Friday night (June 17), sunset 11:09 PM, Saturday morning (June 18), sunrise 4:09 AM. One hour of 'night' between dusk and dawn!
