Why am I looking up?

“When the Sun is in the right position and, typically, hidden from direct view, these thin clouds can be seen significantly diffracting sunlight in a nearly coherent manner, with different colors being deflected by different amounts. Therefore, different colors will come to the observer from slightly different directions. Many clouds start with uniform regions that could show iridescence but quickly become too thick, too mixed, or too angularly far from the Sun to exhibit striking colors.

The featured image and an the video were taken late last year over Ostersund, Sweden.”

Yesterday was the shortest day of the year here at

41.486338″ N, 81.498847″ W

This is a photo of the shadow of the flagpole outside the local post office at “high” noon yesterday.  The sun never got any higher than this.

I hope you cast your cakes and ale under the trees to help bring back the sun.
