About half of the navigation takes place in the dark. Therefore, today's picture of the day is a picture of the night.
At the beginning, two weeks ago, there was no moon. The night was pitch black with a truly indefinite number of stars, and countless shooting stars.
By now, the moon has grown bigger. Fewer stars are visible, but the moonlight is amazing. And it helps controling the gennaker (On the other hand: In a moonless night, referring to stars is great for navigation).
The picture was taken after the end of a nightshift at about 3:15UTC.
