Technically we got the sun back in Finnsnes on Monday, but due to the surrounding mountains we wont actually see it until next Monday. However, we are getting an indirect glimpse as it illuminates the peaks of ‘our’ mountains. Ironically due to some complex geometry (positioning, height and topography of the mountains, and the arc of the sun), the nearby lower peaks are in sunshine for longer than the highest peak. I did wonder about trying to plot it on a map, but we’ve got a visiting youth evangelism team arriving very soon. And if I was much better at skiing I would take a trip to the top of the highest mountain and take a 360 degree picture so you could see the band of light which runs gold through deep pink to iridescent blue around the horizon – quite amazing!
