Sunset at EGRIP.
After August 13th the sun touches the horizon around 0:30. Weather has been overcast but this night was clear and cold (-25 deg) and for the first time this year we could observe the sun actually dip under the horizon for 20 min around 0:30. Besides from the hard work by all packing down, the highlight of yesterday was the rescue of a little bird named Bruce by Emma and Martin, who have adopted the bird and will bring it out to Kangerlussuaq.
What we did today:
Weather: Sun with wind 0 m/ to 4 m/s from variable directions, temperatures -27°C to -10°C.
