Bright, like early dawn or twilight in north east Pennsylvania At midnight
It's 12:40 in the morning here and it's really bright for this time of night. I have never seen it like this. I'm located in the forest away from any significant light pollution about 40 miles east of Scranton. It snowed today, ground is covered and sky is totally overcast. I can't see where the indirect light is coming from but it's all around me. Normally I can't see even a few feet in front of me, or even my car parked in the driveway but now I can see my neighbor's car across the road clear as day. It's bright enough for my cameras to switch off the IR mode and show dim color. During the drive up here tonite it was fairly dark but it has been getting a little brighter every hour.. I don't think moonlight being defused in the cloud layer would cause this without a corresponding hotspot which I don't see.

This is the first time I have ever seen this, lived here for years. Can anyone in the area please confirm this is also happening where you are?

Thank you.

Re: Bright, like early dawn or twilight in north east Pennsylvania At midnight
Last spring it snowed 6 inches here and everything was covered. It stayed cloudy for days afterwards. But we had a full moon (just like tonight) and you could walk around at 2am without a light. It was pretty neat to see.


So you may be experiencing the same thing?

I think due to low lying clouds and the snow, any light at all is reflected off the snow and the clouds and makes it brighter?

I just went outside and checked and its not snowy here in Kentucky at all.. but its pretty bright out for night... i mean its not like what i described above... or what you described...

But I can see quite a bit.

I think its just the moon and low lying clouds.

i think lol

Yes perhaps.. but again, there is no hotspot visible in the cloud cover just difuse light everywhere and this is new to me as even when the moon is full I still need a flashlight not to fall down.. Its just outside the state game lands (dense forest, even with no leaves) and even moon light is usually scattered to a large degree.

Thanks
