The 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Saul Perlmutter, Adam Riess, and Brian Schmidt for their discovery of Dark Energy via observations of Supernovae. My wife, an astronomer who worked with Saul on the Dark Energy Project, was invited to attend the festivities in Stockholm in December of 2011. I accompanied her and took these photographs of the festivities. My emphasis was on Saul and his group. On another section of this website are my images of Stockholm http:/​/​www.​jayfrogel.​com/​p679352932


After the images is a short video and audio clip of one of the beautiful Santa Lucia processions performed for us. This is a very old, lovely, and moving Swedish tradition around Christmas time.
