At the close of a day that saw bright sunshine, 60 degrees, and melting ice, the sunset provided another kind of icing–icing on the cake.  Below, check out photos taken over a half hour period.  One of them shows some streaks of purple/pink that lasted only a moment.  The first photo in this series shows the sun still in the sky, and is what the DamCam saw. 

Earlier today Dronezella One went airborne to cover the disappearing ice. Click here to see the video and slide show.

At 7:30 this morning, the moon set in a place normally reserved for a mid-summer sunset.  Here’s what it looked like.
