How long can the Solar Impulse solar plane run at night? And what if it runs into cloudy weather?

    The first successful night flight by the Solar Impulse plane lasted for 26 hours, 10 minutes and 19 seconds. This was in 2010. 

    Currently the plane is still being developed to handle much longer flights through a variety of weather conditions with the final aim being a trip around the world using only solar energy. This attempt has been scheduled for 2014 with long term flights being scheduled throughout 2012-2013.
