Thaw Residency (the last astronomical twilight)


The last of the winter snows signal a change.  The ice breaks up in the fjord, the waterfalls are gushing, and the night (absolute dark) is replaced by astronomical twilight (when the Sun is between 12 degrees and 18 degrees below the horizon). The days start out at 16 hours long and quickly moves to 19 hours before your residency ends.  You will have plenty of light to work.

Later Event: May 19
No more Night Residency
