Fifteen Fifteen #SkywatchFriday

Pictures taken right after sunset, where I live in upstate New York, on June 21.
Today, our daylight length was fifteen hours and fifteen minutes.
Not directly west, but it was still pretty.

Looking up.

One more angle.

Now, it's time for the downward march of daylength until we reach the winter solstice.

If you were interested in the Fairbanks, Alaska midnight sun game I blogged about yesterday (which just concluded a few moments ago - after all, Fairbanks is four hours behind us here in New York State) Major League Baseball has an extensive post on this year's events.  Check out the sky shots at 12:01 am on June 21.

Join Yogi and other bloggers who watch the sky (on the first Friday of summer and other Fridays) at #SkywatchFriday.
