Sunset 6:15PM. Alameda, CA
Farewell my dear friend. I'd hoped to find or be somewhere nice at sunset this evening, but I was in my car in an unfamiliar neighborhood- So this is it- an ordinary street on the first sunset with no Sally in the world.

Sunset 7:01 PM. San Francisco
Today was the day- Sunrise and sunset were both at 7:01-
slicing the day in half.
I lured Norman and my nephew Paul from Montana up onto the roof with the expectation that we would all see the partially eclipsed blood moon rising opposite the sunset this evening. Too bad there were all those buildings and trees in the way. The plan was to watch the sun set into the ocean (fog along the horizon obscured that) and then to turn around and see what would have been a 3/4 eclipsed moon rising behind us.

Fall Equinox (equal day and night at the equator). At this latitude, however, we still have a few extra minutes of light. Our day of equal light and darkness- the Equilux- arrives on the 26th or 27th depending on the source. Stay tuned.

How many times has the sun set during your lifetime so far?
Norman was born on August 14, 1945,the day Japan surrendered to the Allies. We celebrated his birthday this evening while he was out enjoying one of his favorite things: driving around in his car.

Quepos (near Manuel Antonio), Costa Rica
|From Joe: Here’s where I was standing-|
Joe was one of my brother's best friends, and they spent many a wild day together in their youth before setting down to family life. We have stayed in touch since my brother passed away several years ago, and here is a sunset Joe sent from a recent family trip to Costa Rica.

ckusalsa from YouTube shot a better quality video than I did so I hope they don't mind my sharing it here. The whole evening was amazing. Many thanks to Sarah Cahill and all the other performers who made it possible.
And hooray and thanks to all who participated in the sunset bell ringing. What a fabulous noise!!
