Here I am in Deadhorse for another New Years Eve. Missed seeing the lunar elicpse because it got cloudy about 9 am. That was a bummer, it had been really clear and the full moon was beautful when I came into work a little before 6 am.
Though the days are getting longer, it's still dark all the time. We don't get a sunrise for another month or so.
Virg sent met his photo of our jet on the tarmac over at Kuparuk today. I don't know who took it, but it's a nice shot showing the full moon. That flight departed at 2:30 pm, so this had to be taken some time close to then. -27 over there when it was taken.
