  Iben in the sunset. The picture is taken 00:15 – just after midnight.


We are getting close to the night where the sun sets so every night when the clouds allow we are watchíng to see when the whole sun disc is under the horizon. Not yet! We believe it should happen the night between Saturday and Sunday and plan to enjoy the view from the windows on the first floor of the Dome.
