Walking through the dimly lit living room at sundown this past March, was surprised for a moment to see my twice a year visitor calmly glowing in golden brightness! Not sure who it represents but I always welcome the appearance!
1st Day of Spring
As I glanced to the front door from where the light was coming I remembered this was the first Day of Spring. Winter is coming to an end!
If you take a compass reading one will find that my front door faces almost due west. On the vernal equinox each year the sitting sun will shine through the front door glass creating an image on the fireplace. Then the sun, after making it's way north to the first day of summer, will start it's journey back south, once again shining through the door glass and casting an image of a friendly apparition!
Thanks Ron, your story about the Lahaina Noon today gave me the idea for this actual happening event at home!
