Path of the Sun

Path of Sun Solstice 2012

This is a great shot put out by the University of Alaska Fairbanks of the sun’s path this past Winter Solstice. The picture, taken from campus, is eight exposures at 30 minute intervals.

It was a solid -40F the entire day, and you can clearly see the icefog that is blanketing the town below the UAF campus.

The photo really gives someone who has never experienced the north country a feel for how little daylight we get at this time of year.
