Reappearing sun at the Watchstone on 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.

The sun disappeared behind the Ward Hill 0f Hoy
About 14:56 it started to reappear
It shone brightly for a few minutes
Zoomed in
As is sank it grew less bright
It slowly sank into the notch in the hills
And then disappeared again about15:06
Sunset 15:07

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. Also lovely sunrises as above.
