A Dark And Stormy Night
image by Göran Strand, Sweden
A few nights ago summer time come to an end here in Sweden and we're back to normal time. This means that it will be darker one hour earlier in the evenings, to all astrophotographers' big delight. I went out to capture the last hours of summer time. Here's a photo of the half moon rising behind the city hall of Östersund. In the background you can see some clouds that are lit by the moon.
