Date & place   June 19, 2009, Mont Saint-Michel
As I was near the Mont Saint-Michel for an exhibition, I decide to take profit of that to go to this great place. The Summer solstice is in 2 days only, so the night fall very late.
A few minutes before midnight, the sky is still bright toward North-West. But, there's a place more brighter: the sky just above the Mont Saint-Michel: it is so powerfully illuminated that the cloud passing there are very bright. Ursa Minor is anyway visible higher in the picture.
