Twilight Nights

Museum at Twilight

The light is staying late! Taken at 10pm on April 6th after the end of the homework session. Absolutely gorgeous night with the crescent moon descending behind the museum.

March hit us pretty hard with light! We already are up to 14 hours 15 minutes of sunlight a day, and gaining just under 7 minutes a day! The Sun sets after 9pm now and stays fairly twilighty, especially looking north, until about 11 pm. It’s cool, after the Sun sets we can watch the light sky move from west to north as we rotate away from it.
