A Year of Sunrise

Saw an awesome video on Bad Astronomy recently. It shows images of the Earth taken from a geostationary satellite every day at 6:00am for a year. It’s a great example of how the angle of the sun changes with the seasons.

  1. Excellent. I just had the globe out to explain to my daughter what the equinox and change of seasons really meant. I can show here this video as well.

    That is a very neat video. It is interesting to see what is happening during the year. Being on such a large scale, we don’t really get to see that.
