    Frank,

    I see Scorpius draped across the lighthouse in an orientation it can never assume from that latitude. Just by trial and error in Stellarium it looks like it's setting from a location much closer to the equator, say 10°N. From Scorpius you find the teapot of Sagittarius with an interloper, Saturn, in its lid which would put it sometime around May 2018. Careful measurements of the image could presumably pin things down a bit more precisely.

    The sky image is actually not very good. Many of the stars appear as unequal doubles suggesting that the photographer bumped the camera during the exposure.
