Sunrise or Sunset?

Posted on: March 1, 2010

The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment the trailing edge of the sun’s disk disappears below the horizon in the west. Due to refraction of light in the atmosphere, the ray path of the setting sun is highly distorted near the horizon making the apparent astronomical sunset occur when the sun’s disk is already about one diameter below the horizon.

The colors in this photograph take my breath away — exquisite!

There is not a decision yet if the sun is rising in my life or setting!

Challenging to contemplate.BTW, were you not jammified and in the living room…LOL

I am trying to figure out this blog to see if I will like it or not. It is different.

Actually, my laptop is wireless and seems to also be a physical appendage. I’ve become rather adept at juggling between Kindle and laptop (although Len is growling at me because I have my laptop) …

Now now….Lets tame the tiger!
You make me laugh, I am asking Mike for a laptop or netbook for my birthday…..Been saving some money.

Kim – Len said you may want to consider an iPad. They don’t come out until the end of March, but now would be the time to start doing your homework. I don’t know anything about them, (I had to ask him what a netbook was), but he said it may well be your cup of tea.

That said … I promised to sit with him and we’re going to continue reading our together book. Have a great evening.
