As you can imagine, it’s not possible for everyone to experience the equal division of the day into light and darkness on the same day. That event only coincides with the equinox at the equator. For everyone else on the planet, it depends on where you are located.
If you would like to know when you will experience the balance of light and dark, have a look at www.sunrisesunset.com. You can enter your location and see which day has the sunrise and the sunset separated by 12 hours. That will be your Equilux.
(Did you see a green flash? Just before the sunset titles? The moment of sunset?)

Sunset 7:44. San Francisco
The sun set while we were waiting for the previews to begin. So rather than miss anything, we observed the moment by ringing bells from our seats. Unfortunately it was to the annoyance of one of our fellow patrons who was way into the JC Penny back to school advertisement.

SHARE YOUR SUNWATCH-
Inspiration for invitation from dailybell2008 to share your sunrise or sunset in a small effort to remind and unite us of our connection to each other and to this world which we seem so determined to destroy.

This was the month for mixed and merged realities. Hard to keep track, but the sunrise was a nice constant.
Sunrise 5:27AM. Troy, NY July 12, 2013
This sunrise is from was the first of 3 days for the Art and Science of Deep Listening held at the EMPAC center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. The conference was held in celebration and as an exploration into Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening practice from practioners around the world. It was an amazing 3 days and hopefully it will only be the first annual conference of more to come.
Bjorn Eriksson (aka miulew) and I rang in the sunrise in the dorm parking lot. A nice quiet affair (except for all the air conditioner blowers). Afterwards, I just went back to bed but Bjorn went on to take advantage of David Arner’s birdwalk. Later in the day we performed with the Avatar Orchestra Metaverse. This was the first time that so many of us were present together in Real Life (Tina Pearson aka Humming Pera, Viv Corringham aka Zonzo, Norman Lowrey aka North Zipper, Bjorn and I aka Groucho Parx) along with our avatar counterparts and the other Second Life performers from around the globe
Sunrise 5:50 AM. Brooklyn, NY July 30, 2013
Another opportunity to ring in the morning with another member of the AOM, Tina Pearson.

At the time of the Solstice, the mornings were already creeping forward, expanding the territory of darkness. However, the evenings were also moving forward so we could still revel in the same amount of light- temporarily holding the light line.
Sadly, now however, the evenings have leveled off and the sun will continue to set at the same time for another week before it joins the mornings to shrink our daylight. Ahhhhh.
It was really wonderful to be at the western most edge of the time zone and just a bit farther north while in Detroit. Sunset after 9PM—glorious! (It’s so close to Canada)
Sunrise 5:56 AM
Sunset 9:13 AM
Detroit Institute of Arts Museum
I took a short break from the Shirin Neshat exhibition to ring down the sun. I loved this museum — beautiful Diego Rivera murals and recently renovated building. A live acoustic music performance in the evening—the museum was packed.

Sunset 7:59 PM. San Francisco
Another month of violence. Here in the US and all over the world. Commonplace and it seems with increasing frequency. And while this small quiet observance does little to alleviate the intense suffering and grief too many people are experiencing first hand, I would still like to offer it as a moment of reflection. A time out and a tune in to something larger than ourselves. A breath. A pause.
This evening's observance is in the garden of The Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist in the Mission.

Sunset 6:01PM. San Mateo
Just checking in with a little update from February. This is my Godson Kazimir who was born in January 2008, the first year of dailybell. Since we’ve been doing this all of his life, it’s completely normal to him to ring bells at sunset wherever we happen to be. I just love it. So here we are at a local restaurant having dinner. We took pictures of each other as we rang down the sun, and then Kazi took a photo of the remaining food. I’ll be posting something every month, just to stay in touch. In the meantime, I am working with Everglade Records to produce a DVD of the media from the first year of the dailybell. It’s slow going, but we hope to have something ready in a few months.

The sun has been rising at the same time (7:25) every morning for the past 2 weeks here in San Francisco. In New York, it flat-lined for about a week starting on New Year's Eve and has just turned around a few days ago.
This gradual slowing down and holding pattern for the sunrise time happens just after the Solstice in the Winter (at least at these latitudes). In the Summer, it's the sunset time that is suspended.
Like the holding of a breath that's just about to start leaking out again, we are poised at the last moment before the sun finally begins creeping towards the horizon a little earlier each day on Monday.
