St. Patrick and the Equilux

Sunrise 7/19 AM Sunset 7:18 PM
March 17, 2014
San Francisco 

For the sunrise I usually face east for a more direct view of the change in light. However, knowing that I was going to document both the sunrise and sunset, I decided to face the Pacific Ocean in the morning. And there was the moon! Hanging over the sea, on it’s way down.

So here is a nice view from the middle of the street on the day of the nearest balance of light and darkness as we approach the Equinox. To find out which day the Equilux occurs at your latitude- click here and enter your location.

Do you see the flare at sunset? Can that be the “green flash”? I have only seen it through a camera lens. Has anyone ever seen it with his or her bare eyes?

On the move into the light- Happy Spring!
