Missed the Apogee

On my calendar, I have today at 12:22 as the equinox, one of the two days a year the sun is perfectly, directly overhead. But, upon rr-xjecking my calculations, I discovered it was yesterday. Not that there’s THAT much difference, but I like to be outside when it happens. I will be out there today, looking down a hole from a fence pole.

A light pole would have no shadow. Sunlight would shine all the way to the bottom of a well.

It only happens between the earths tropics.

Yesterday was was holiday, today is seems like Monday, except I’m looking forward to getting to work. Grinding my nose on the grindstone.

Have a great week!
