Wow. That's a stunner.

It was WEIRDLY dark at 8:30 p.m. and had BEEN dark for some time. And NOT super sunny at 7 a.m. Apparently winter is coming. Although the next 4+ days are going to be in the 100s (F), so...

Aye, almost 12 hours of darkness again. Would be out looking for aurora tonight, but it's foggy :o(

All views are valid, Sian :o) I was particularly taken by your idea of cheese-rolling the sun down a hillside. Genius!
