Bright Sun

First Sun Of 2009

For the first time since late November 2008 we were able to see the sun. It was up for 2 hours and 20 minutes, basically just rolling along the horizon, since it at peak it was less than 1 degree above the horizon. With the cold clear air it rose and sat with lots of mirage effect and had a green rim and as it was setting I even saw green segment. I took several pictures of the rising and setting of the sun with the green segment filmed as it was setting.
Weather was -28F with light south winds and clear skies. Inversion layers were causing lots of mirages as the day progressed.
