Reappearing sun at the Watchstone 12 December 2001

The Watchstone is situated at the south end of the Bridge of Brodgar NW of the Standing Stones of Stenness. The sun reappears from behind the Ward Hill of Hoy from here. We hope to determine the "flashing" day this year if the weather allows. Sun reappeared today for about 8 minutes .

For the first few days we had very overcast weather, but starting on 9th December we had a big high pressure over us. Excellent sunsets from then.
