Its Summer Solstice this Monday, the maximum height of the Sun during the day, and the shortest length of Night. Also combining with this time of the
year is Noctilucent Clouds which can illuminate the sky to the North as they are lit up from the Sun BELOW the horizon, giving off a hue as they cast
the reflected rays back to Earth. almost creating a false "sunrise" some 2 hours ahead of the Summer Sunrise at 4am.
Don't forget the actual Summer Solstice Sunrise is this Monday Morning however, after then we look forward to longer nights and shorter days again.
