Winds southeast, 17 knots. Excellent visibility and clear skies.
This morning my watch began at 3am, and we witnessed a yellow crescent moonrise closely followed by a golden sunrise. Every day now, the sun rises 30 minutes or so earlier, and tonight for the first time, it was never truly dark. We are past the solstice, but our days are still getting longer; we’ll soon have 24-hour sunlight, and someone on watch at all hours to enjoy it.
