At this point, 4.34am, the sun should have risen in a ring of fire. But this is all we could see, a faint orange glow on the clouds. Just prior to this we suspect the sky darkened noticeably, but it may have been wishful thinking.
We resolved to stay until the show was over, in the hope of seeing the sun through a gap in the clouds.
