Happy Ostara!

20 March 2008

Spring equinox, and we’ve got snow on the ground, sleet in the air, and a winter storm warning until Friday morning.

Huh.

I shared the World Sunlight Map back in December, and I don’t know if any of you have visited on a regular basis, but go check it out again today. If you recall, during the winter light on the planet looked like a pyramid. Today, it is as close to a straight column as the reflection off a two-dimensional representation of a sphere can be. As the season progresses, it will spread again, this time in the opposite direction, giving us an upside-down pyramid of light.

I can’t describe how amazing I find this daily representation of the trek of the sun. It’s my favorite daily Web site.
