Fall equinox

Today was the fall equinox, when sunrise and sunset are at the same time and day and night are equal. I happened to catch the sunrise...

...at about 6:47 a.m.

It was a decidedly chilly 34F.

I also caught the sunset...

...at 6:42 p.m. (Sorry the room was so dark...)

We don't have perfectly flat horizons in the east or west, so that accounts for the five-minute time discrepancy. Pretty cool.

Sorry I've been so quiet lately on the blog. It's the busy season for our home woodcraft business, and we're routinely working twelve to fourteen-hour days. Kinda crazy around here!


  1. Actually it's tomorrow :-)

  2. It's tomorrow (9/23) at 5:05 AM Eastern. :)

  3. I am sooo jealous...It was 103 here Sunday, and 100 yesterday. Fall? What fall?
