First Sun - Friday Photo #308

Photo: First sun of 2018 over Lofoten from Offersøykammen, Vestvågøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. January 10, 2018. 11:39

With the last sunset of the year only a week away and a pretty crappy weather forecast until then, it is likely that Lofoten has seen it’s last sunlight for the year. Luckily I’m down in Oslo this week, and will have a bit of light hopefully. Otherwise, I can’t remember when I saw the sun last anymore, but it has been some weeks already.

So now I look forward to the return of the sun here in the north. Technically it should be January 5-6, depending on where on Lofoten you are. But as with our descent into the polar night, the weather also plays an important factor. So it can take another week or so before I might see the sun floating low over the southern sky.

This year, 2018, January 10th was the return of the sun to Lofoten. Some low hazy clouds had been forecast, so I knew I needed to head up a mountain for my best chance at a bit of light. I’ve already written about this day before (Friday Photo #262), so I wont go into much detail. But the countdown now begins. When will the 2019 sun return?…
