We are starting to test running our time-lapse panorama camera a couple more hours a day including sunrise and sunset. This is the 70MP thumbnail image uploaded via cellular wifi. The full sized images are about 800MP.

The small dots of light in the center of the image are solar yard lights that were placed out in the dunes to track solar insolation. The few of lights that are still on in this image (at 4AM) are the locations in the dunes that got the most light and therefore had the best charged batteries. We will be taking more images in the middle of the night to get a shot when all the lights are on.

The bright lights on the horizon at the top-right of the image are from chicago.
