Not as vividly red as it has been the last few days. That was the SMOKE from the fires out West.

Kind of a subdued sunset. Very peaceful. I enjoyed it. Hope you do too. Enjoy. SMILE.

‘Timeanddate.com’ “Night Sky” Feature Looks Extremely Promising & Mega Useful.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to get YOU there. SMILE.


Click to ENLARGE. The ‘Night Sky’ feature in action.


I have been a HUGE fan of ‘timeanddate‘ for years —  as long as I can remember. I rely on them extensively. They, like Wikipedia, is one of my key ‘goto’ resources. I endorse them whenever I can because they do such a great job.

Yesterday, when I was looking for sunrise/sunset times for the 2020 Summer Solstice I happen to see this NEW ‘Night Sky’ feature — supposedly still in beta. I gave it a quick spin. I didn’t have much time. Ditto again, just now. Again gave it a very quick spin. Looks GREAT. I know that they will NOT disappoint. A very competent & thorough outfit. I am thrilled. I will happily go to them for my night sky. I am excited. Thank YOU, ‘timeanddate’. Keep up the good work.

2020 Summer Solstice Is A Week Away, But We Are Having Our Earliest Sunrises.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & study. From ‘timeanddate.com’ — where else?


2020 Summer Solstice (my least favorite day of the year) is on June 20.

We will have 15 hours & 23 minutes of daylight.


Sunrise & sunset times are NOT in (& never are) in lock-step. So, we don’t get the earliest sunrise coupled with the latest sunset on the Summer Solstice.

This year the earliest sunrises, at 5:05am, are happening right now — and will be done on June 18. Sunsets, however, continue to be later. Which is how we still managed to get the longest day on the Solstice. But, we are now talking in SECONDS.

2020 Spring Equinox In New Hampshire: Thursday, March 19 at 11:49 pm (Eastern); 03:49 Greenwich.

by Anura Guruge


Happy Spring Equinox 2020.

[It is also called the Vernal Equinox
— that being the Latin for ‘Spring’.]

Click to ENLARGE.


I also share with you “Spring“.

Please enjoy.


Sunrise/Sunset for New Hampshire as of the
2020 Spring Equinox.

Notice that it is NOT EXACTLY 12 hours of sunlight on the Equinox.
That is mainly because we are so good at measuring time.
It has to do with the so called precession of the Earth’s axis.
Our rotation WOBBLES like a spinning top.

From, of course (where else), ‘timeanddate.com‘.

Use link below for original.

Click here for the ‘timeanddate.com’ original.


Yes, we are USED to the Spring Equinox being on March 20 (or 21).

Click to ENLARGE. Also from ‘timeanddate.com’.


This is the earliest it has been in the US in 124 years.

The key here, however, is ‘US’. It is still March 20 in Greenwich — and to us astronomers that is good enough.

Rather convoluted explanation as to why it is this early. If you really want to know, here is a link.

But note, it will again be March 19 — in the US — in 4-years. Yes, that it is also a LEAP YEAR does have a bearing.


As is my custom let me also please share some
catching ‘Allegories of Spring’.
