I used to post sunset pix from my back deck, but our current abode doesn't have the views. This is from my bus stop on Main Street. Not bad for the shortest day of the year ☺️ — at Lincoln Place. posted by Joe Pokrifka

San Mateo, CA
Leaving Fred. Walking down the hallway with the little Santa Light on the floor and the rush hour traffic at the end of the hall outside the door, there was just something about it. The light. The stillness. A sense of suspension.

day after the election- The sun DID rise today. But not as usual. I happened to catch the exact moment that the sun crossed the horizon and you can see the flash of light when that happens. It’s worth a look. best wishes and much love Brenda

This is not a strict sunrise, there was a huge cloud coming in over the sea, and the sun had to travel higher before it broke through, about 8 AM on November 7. Let's hope for lots of light today! Barbara in Barcelona

This is the first sunrise after the return to standard time for those of us who stepped away. May this jump to earlier light in the morning brighten the days to come in every way. Best wishes to everyone on the eve of election day.

Thanks for lovely brighter mornings! Amazing! Gives hope! Here is a photo of the sun recently, friday the 28th october from the northern swedish region I am living in, from a small village called Bollstabruk. It is a sunset, already around 4pm (before the wintertime change the former weekend). Sunsets is happening at same time as sunrises, and I feel so connected with all of you from all different places, through the sun! Let the sun shine on us, in new brighter mornings and brighter days! We are listening and watching the sun together! HUGS AND LIGHT! Björn Eriksson

Taken from ferry, Pelješac peninsula, the other day. What you see in the background is the whole of the world famous island of Hvar. Left is Pelješac itself, and the big mountain on the right is the mainlands.

The following 2 offerings reveal some basic things about the dailybell project that either remind me of why I started doing it in the first place or to illustrate something simple but unexpected that I have come to appreciate.
The first was the significance of cycles and of our personal and communal connections to them—the small daily ones, anniversaries, big cycles of living and dying. My friend Ian reminded me that August 11th was his mother’s birthday. She would have been over 100 had she still been living and there aren’t that many people around these days who would remember her special day. So Happy Birthday Henny! We love you and still enjoy sitting in your old blue chair.
The circumstances of the sunrise by the Williamsburg Bridge at 5:53AM on 8/1 is a fairy common (and potentially frustrating) occurrence and has inspired this month’s Calendar Challenge. How often does anyone actually get to see the sun as it rises or sets? Especially from home. There are usually buildings, trees or something blocking the view of the horizon.
Best wishes as we gather momentum rolling into Autumn--

from Barbara Held:
I wanted to send you a special photo of sunset at Lake Manasarovar, a sacred pilgrimage spot in Tibet. This was just before we did a fire ceremony … an incredibly moving moment on this big adventure!

Many thanks to my niece, Hannah for this month's challenge- ODE TO THE SUN.
How many things can you do at once?
Follow the sun up or down as it crosses the horizon, make some noise and document it at the same time?
Share here, on Facebook and/or with friends when you are done!

Sunset 8:58. July 3, 2016
It's always very fun and challenging to try and figure out where you are and what time it is on the earth below from the middle of nowhere in the sky. I look at the map on the seat back video and then lookup the sunset/rise time over the nearest city. This time it looked like Buffalo, NY at 8:58.

Oakland, CA. Chapel of the Chimes.
Even though this year’s annual Garden of Memory event (thank you Sarah Cahill!) to celebrate the summer Solstice fell on the day after the Solstice (leap year disruption?), the bell ringing at sunset was a sparkly, glorious moment. Hundred’s of bells added to the already swirling soundscape that included the Cardew Choir in the final hour of their 4-hour performance of Pauline Oliveros’ Heart Chant.
Celestial FYI— While the sunrise has bottomed out at its earliest time (for this location), it will turn around and start squeezing the light from the day on Monday (6/27). Good news, however, is that the sun will continue to remain at it’s latest for another week- so we still have the sense of long days for a while longer.

Sunrise 5:26 AM.
Adriatic Sea. Vasto Marina, Italy.
This peaceful early morning moment was sandwiched between two slices of mild excitement. In order to see the sun over the Adriatic Sea, I had to jump over a little wall outside the bedroom window and walk across the roof. Once I had finished watching the sunrise, I turned around to return to my room and discovered that all of the rooms looked alike.
So I made my best guess and climbed over what I thought was my little wall and then wondered why the door to the bedroom was closed. It wasn’t until I saw a pair of legs and some red boxer shorts approach the window from the other side that I realized that this was not my room- not my window- not my balcony and hopped over the wall as fast as I could.
My apologies to the man I disturbed this morning. Hopefully a day in paradise will heal all.

You'd think traveling at 750 miles per hour would feel faster than this... Sunset at La Esquina Gallery in Kansas City, MO during a recent presentation and performance. At this latitude it takes a little more than 2 minutes from the time the bottom of the sun touches the horizon until it completely disappears.

Radical sunset for the last day of this month of February... We've had several deep red sunsets lately, and they're always kind of a thrill. This was taken in Oakland about fifteen minutes after the actual sunset time of 6:02.
