Midnight in May

Midnight in May
This time of year, here on top of the world, the sun rises around 4 and sets around midnight AKDT(Alaska Daylight Time), so our sky picks up some great colors around sunset. I took this a couple of days ago around 30 minutes after midnight, AKDT.

Of course the sun will be up longer and longer until the solstice. For example tomorrow'd day, sunrise to sunset, will be 6 minutes and 44 seconds longer than today.

Marri Smit, Cat Shilova have particularly liked this photo

Thanks, Cat. & because I'm on top of the world and the angle of the earth toward the sun this time of year, the sunrise/sunset colors often extend almost all the way around the horizon, 360 degrees! Quite marvelous!
