It's the time of year when AuroraMAX is only live for a few hours a night because of the long daylight hours, so it's not uncommon for us to now be out before they go live, and still be out after they've switched off because of, you know, sunrise. And after getting skunked on the 20th, I can't tell you how much better it feels when you're not still waiting for your first glimpse of the aurora after 3a, and on the road driving home as it approaches 4a with the sky brightening, after you drove out into the countryside at sunset.

Strange times, indeed.
