A couple of weeks ago I took my daughter down to the estuary and bird sanctuary across from our home to see the skyglow after sunset. Ever since then she has been anxious to see the sunset. There are two problems with that. The first is that 4 out of 5 sunsets are clouded out at this time of year The second is that in midsummer at 53 degrees latitude, the sun will set long after her bedtime. There is some light in the sky even at 11:00 p.m. in mid June. But we'll enjoy the ones we can see, and splash in every puddle we find.
