APOD: Equinox Sunrise Around the World (2022 Sep 30)

Post by APOD Robot » Fri Sep 30, 2022 4:05 am

Image Equinox Sunrise Around the World

Explanation: A planet-wide collaboration resulted in this remarkable array of sunrise photographs taken around the September 2022 equinox. The images were contributed by 24 photographers, one in each of 24 nautical time zones around the world. Unlike more complicated civil time zone boundaries, the 24 nautical time zones are simply 15 degree longitude bands corresponding to 1 hour steps that span the globe. Start at the upper right for the first to experience a sunrise in the nautical time zone corresponding to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) + 12 hours. In that time zone, the photographer was located in Christchurch, New Zealand. Travel to the west by looking down the column and then moving to the column toward the left for later sunrises as the time zone offset in hours from UTC decreases. Or, you can watch a video of September 2022 equinox sunrises around planet Earth.

I think you have an error at UTC-4 as it says "CA".

I thought the same at first. I thought CA meant California.
Per wiki: "Eastern Passage is an unincorporated suburban community in Halifax Regional Municipality Nova Scotia, Canada."

You think that’s confusing? I grew up in Ontario, CA — that is, in the province of Ontario in the country of Canada, not the city of Ontario in the state of California. (By the way, I have for decades lived fairly close to Eastern Passage, CA.)

I love to think of our ancestors, who (LIKE US) looked at what they experienced, and wondered, well, WTF? We still do! But, we have discovered WONDERS, both observationally AND theoretically, about the world: It ROTATES. It GOES AROUND THE SUN. Read Galileo, to recall how tough this was. Today we are blessed with quantum mechanics and relativity. The BIG TWO. Whew!

The Sun does come up, quite reliably. 10,000 years ago we looked at it, and wondered....

And I had a business in Ontario, CA - that is, in the city of Ontario in the state of California. Got some curiously misdirected shipments from time to time.
