Time out for the Equinox

I shall write more about the wanderings in England later today, I hope. Meanwhile, here is my sun photo for the fall equinox with a pasted in sun from the summer solstice for comparison. (I'm glad we don't have the 90 degree weather of the southern U.S.!)

Cool! I love that idea. I need to figure out how to do that. Need to find a likely spot.

Neat illustration of the solar event! Last year we made a sundial out of granite as part of our homeschooling projects. This year we have been tracking the sun's position again.

R, If you have Photoshop or some other graphic editor it is easy to cut and paste image bits. Getting the photos is more difficult as the weather sometimes does not co-operate.

WJ, Niches had some good information on sun/moon positions just a day or two ago. I am thinking I would like to do some more moon watching too. When I was much younger, I used to also keep track of time by the big dipper. Have you tried that yet?
