The sunglint of May 25, 2015

What happened?

In the overnight hours of May 24/25, 2015, the visible satellite picked up sunglint over the Beaufort Sea north of Tuktoyaktuk. Although sunglint is a fairly common event, seeing it this far north isn't. The satellite imagery showing it is presented here.
