Sun flying north!

Left photo shows sun setting at Indian Head on December 21, 2017, at the Winter Solstice. In same photo, you can see Crainy Island, a tiny spot in the Potomac River to the right of the sun. The right-hand photo shows sun setting directly behind Crainy Island on January 25, 2018. Next major stop in my visual sun progression markings is at High Point in VA. That should happen in roughly 6 weeks. Must look it up. Major visual point after that is at Hallowing Point, VA. Sun will reach Hallowing Point around March 21, 2018.  I normally use the first house on Hallowing Point as my special marker, rather than the tip of Hallowing Point because the sun sets just about at that house on my daughter’s birthday, 3/24 and then on its return trip south near my son’s birthday, 9/17.

Sunset 10-22-17

If you can enlarge this photo, Indian Head, Crainy Island, High Point and Hallowing Point can be found.

Urgent: Find the Winter Solstice sunset!

Sunset 12 19

Try to get a sunset view tonight or tomorrow night! The Winter Solstice is 12/21. But my husband says tonight is the longest night and it’s supposed to be cloudy here.  Photo is of 12/20 sunset. Tonight it will set a little bit to the left of where it is in photo. Then the sun will pause and return to the north.

Please let me know if your sunset search is successful!
