Forensic Astronomer Don Olson traveled with Texas State students to Normandy to uncover the exact locations and times Claude Monet painted some of his most iconic works, via sky and telescope:

Morning light illuminates Monet’s 1885 scene, while our photograph shows the beach near sunset and with the tide level much lower than that shown by Monet.
