Watching Equinox Sunrise

Post by michael feist »

A fairly clear sky before sunrise this morning, 22/09/21, so walked up to Foredown Ridge to watch the Equinox Sunrise. The sky lowdown was rather murky and scratched up by contrails but saw the Sun as an orange-red disc, rising from behind the distant hills at 0650 BST or 0550 GMT or UT. While waiting for the sunrise, used 8x42 monocular on monopod for a good view of just after Full Moon in the west.

And yet here in Devon the day is still longer than the night. Not until the 25th is the day is 12:00 hours long (07:06 to 19:06). On the 26th the night is in the ascendancy.
