Momentary Pause


I am hard at work putting together the upcoming edition of Grand Rounds, and I would like to extend a hearty THANK YOU to all the bloggers who have submitted early. All 30 of you, and you know who you are. For anyone who has not yet submitted, please do! The deadline is not until noon (EDT) on Monday; any number of hours prior to that deadline is greatly appreciated.

I don't really have the time or brain cells to spare to put up a new post of substance before Tuesday, but I hated leaving the blog idle until then (blogaholic? me??) ... So for your meditational enjoyment, this was the view from the front deck about 10:30 pm on August 30th.

Stay tuned...

In my part of the world at this time of the year, the sun sets 5-10 minutes before 6PM everyday. It will be wonderful to see the skies still this fiery red at 10 in the evening.

What time is your sunrise? :)

Wolfbaby--thanks, I do love sunsets.

Kim--you're in!

Dr. Emer--the day I took this photo, the sun rose about 7:30 am. As we head toward Winter Solstice, we are losing light at the rate of 5 minutes per day. By the Fall Equinox we will be pretty close to 12 hours of light, with sun rising about 8 am and setting about 8 pm; and on Dec. 21st, it will rise about 11 am and set about 4 pm. The best is Summer Solstice when the sun is shining brightly at midnight; on that day we have light from 4 am to 2 am, with only a semi-dark twilight in the two hours of "night".

You are one prolific blogger! I've enjoyed reading about Alaska. I feel as if I'm reading an adventure novel each time.
Thanks.

I like the picture. Sorry I was a slug. Wasn't able to get anything to you. Hope you eventually blog about the experience, because I'm curious. Maybe I can aspire to host GR one of these days (in the distant future -- HA!)

...and here I was already fascinated with the 8:30PM July sunsets I witnessed in Chicago when I was there. I have to go to Alaska when my time permits, and see what a "brightly-lit midnight" is all about. Thanks for this beautiful information. =)
