Happy Solstice on June 21 1806 UT!

So here we are just looking for another MW-dx-season even up here in the North (or at least waiting for the beginning in about two months...)

The photo above was taken just about 24 hours before (20 June at 1805 UT) the "Holy Moment" on June 21.

From the
On June 21st at precisely 18:06 UT, Earth's north pole will be tipped to the max (23.5o) toward the Sun. Astronomers call this moment "a solstice." It marks the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere, and winter in the southern hemisphere. The seasons are changing--Happy Solstice!

I wish You all the best during these midsummer days which are in Scandinavia often the n:o one Carneval time (crazy people going to Sauna - heat usually around +100 centigrades - then to swim even into lakes with cold water - and being outside at night with mosquitos)...
