Happy Equinox

Today marks the Vernal Equinox, a day when the Earth’s axis of rotation is relatively vertical relative to its orbit around the sun. And to welcome the sun, I thought it would be nice to share the full, raw video I took in Myrtle Beach last January, with the ocean roaring in the background.

I started the video by approximating the location where the sun would appear using the Sun Seeker App, only to realize it was coming up a little to the left, and had to shift my camera’s direction—it was the 2017 Eclipse video all over again!

The whole video is a bit over 80 minutes long and the sun does go off the edge of the screen but you can see the palmetto in shadow from the ocean reflection of the sunlight, which I think the solar filter captures well.

So, happy Equinox all, and happy 81st birthday to my dear dad!
