08/18/12: It's been a hot and lazy summer, and after the excitement of getting the new book published and finally shaking this summer cold that has been lingering in my head for more than a week, I think it's time that I get back to doing something productive, starting with posting pictures and video from our Alaska trip in June.
     We arrived in Fairbanks on June 22, the longest day of the year. We arrived at 1AM, and saw the Midnight Sun firsthand. It was strange to walk outside the airport at that time and not see any streetlights on, because they were not needed. The sun was very near the horizon, giving the impression of twilight, but it never got darker than that. That night, Stephie went to bed at around 10:30 or so, and I stayed up to read. I was reading in the cabin until well after midnight, without having to turn on a light, as there was enough light outside to be able to read easily.


     I wanted to have some way of portraying that to everyone back home. I took the first video you see here with my camera, just to give you an idea of how bright it was at midnight, but I thought there might be a better way of showing this. I checked the Android market and found a program called LapseIt, which claimed to be able to create a time-lapse film. I set the phone in the window (since it was the best way I could find to stand it up) and told it to take one picture ever six seconds. Except for being unable to supress the camera shutter sound that the phone makes when it takes a picture, it worked great. Here's the resulting video, taken from 10:08pm on June 23 to about 8:42AM on June 24. You can clearly see that it never gets dark but it does dim a bit after midnight. Watch for the steam rising from the small lake on the left side of the picture around 2:30am, and then the sun actually rises again around 4:30am.
