And was the shadow length the same as last year's?

On direct axis from our house, on the Solstice, the Sun sets directly over Teton Pass - exactly there - except for minor perturbations from year to year since the earth does wobble a bit (perhaps from imbibing too much oil?).

This year the sun hit spot on! We thus concluded that the earth has not flipped on its axis, and enjoyed a glass of fine Zinfandel in celebration.

Yes, as Carl Spackler would say: "so we've got that going for us..which is nice."

Well, I was swimming laps today at noon in Scottsdale, Arizona and bemoaning those same short shadows. Was afraid I'd get a sunburn!

Now that's a little something you can make your students do as some sort of an assignment. Thanks for the wonderful idea!


One of the pluses of swimming Masters at noon is that we get to observe the sun's transit on a daily basis. The sun's transit is its highest point in the sky each day.

It's amazing how to the Sun and Earth makes connection.
