For purposes of this contest the definition of 'Night Time' is as follows -
The beginning of darkness, when the Sun is below the horizon. The time from dusk to dawn when no sunlight is visible.

Wikipedia
Complete darkness or astronomical night is the period between astronomical dusk and astronomical dawn when the Sun is between 18 and 90 degrees below the horizon and does not illuminate the sky.

Are we back to using photobucket to host images now instead of the built in host that we had?

I'm not.
Save this as a bookmark or favorite and follow the instructions.

Works like it did before except you have to manually do a couple of things.
After you've chosen your image to upload, it will bring up a progress bar that will eventually say 'complete' then tell you the image was uploaded.

Scroll down to the page till you see the following:

copy/paste the url to the right of the black arrow if you just want a thumbnail or the one with the red arrow if you want the full picture to show up in your reply.
