Russia, winter-time, 05:00 in the morning, and it's light.

Now let's go to Paris, an hour later, 6:06 am, pitch black or at the source because the file name is correct and it doesn't work.

How does this work? Paris is dark and Russia is LIGHT at 5:00 am IN WINTER?????

It all depends on how far north you are:

The Arctic Circle marks the southern extremity of the solar day of the summer solstice and the solar night of the winter solstice. Within the Arctic Circle, the arctic Sun is above the horizon for at least 24 continuous hours per year, in conjunction with the Arctic's Summer Solstice. Likewise, in conjunction with the Arctic's Winter Solstice, the Arctic sun will be below the horizon for at least 24 continuous hours.
(from: Arctic Circle)

That and that it's a few hours later in Russia (from your post we don't know if your times are correcting for time zones or not) is enough to explain this; it is definitely a bit counterintuitive but well within the range of the explainable. Where in Russia is the picture from?

I live in Kenai and I can assure it is dark at 5 am and that mountain ain't that far away from here. So all I can tell you is the Russians probably got their clock screwed up. Cause if it is dark here it is dark there. Ya follow?

Oh, that's a relief. Thanks Polar Bear

Otherwise, the "EARTH IS WOBBLING!" theories of Nancy Leider take on a whole new meaning.

You know?
