Winter solstice 2012

Another year is almost done and today is the winter solstice. It is also a Friday so, in the tradition of pretty photographs for the end of the week, here is one for that... at the winter solstice too.

Winter solstice at SGO. (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)

The photograph was taken looking across the antenna fields; not at KAIRA, but at the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory. Of course, being in the Arctic the sun does not rise above the horizon, but it is only just below it, giving a strange ethereal twilight above the snowy landscape.

Have a nice weekend (and winter solstice too!)
