Sunrise at a decent time…
2006-08-17 06:42:32.000 – Jim Salge, Observer
Fog cleared from the summits early this morning, and the revealed skies were perfectly clear. High pressure now moving in should hold into the weekend, and a few great days are forecast on the higher summits. It’s not often you hear that about Mount Washington!
With all the great weather forecast, I’m actually a bit more excited about the fact that sunrise is now occurring at a later time…late enough that I’ll be awake and on shift to see it. When it was rising at 3:50AM (EST/Observatory time), I had a difficult time getting myself out of bed to see it. However, since that point it’s been rising a bit later every day, and now it’s rising just at the time of my first observation at 5AM!
And this morning’s sunrise did not disappoint, as the picture at right shows it just cresting over the eastern horizon! I look forward to a few more like this over the coming days!
