The Longest Day

Some photos of the second longest day of the year.

Sunset on Papa Stronsay:10:28 p.m.

Sunrise on Papa Stronsay: 3:58 a.m.

Although the sun does drop below the horizon for almost five and a half hours, we do not experience full darkness at this time of year.  You can see on the graph here that we do not have night, properly so called (true darkness), from the 24th April to the 18th August.  However, these dates would only apply when the sky was not overcast.

So beautiful! Late to bed early to rise!
But you don't usually go by the sun, I know- rather by the Son, as sons.

@ Barry Fangmann,

Thank you for your lovely comment! It is indeed a wonderful vocation which I thank God for. it is a shame that more people don't realise the peace and joy of living the Religious life. Thanks for your prayers for our perseverance — in the end, it is the most important grace for salvation!
