Miscellaneous “Sun & Shadow” Items – November 2016

The following are miscellaneous sun, shade, solar and solar energy facts and comments. They were derived from our twitter feed @SunPosition

Our monthly sunrise/sunset tables have been updated.

You don't want to know what time sunset is in Toronto on Sunday Nov 6. But if you must...

DYK: Latest sunrise of the year in Toronto is not in the dead of winter. Because of time change it's tomorrow Sat Nov 5/16 at 7:59 AM.

Amy @amygrief, thank you for the shout-out in your Oct 25/16 Torontohenge article in @blogTO 


“Toronto's home to some pretty spectacular sunsets. If you live in a west-facing highrise, you probably enjoy spectacular views and colourful skies on the regular. But today, everyone in the city will have a chance experience a marvelous show when the sun starts to go down.

That's because it's time for Torontohenge, that time when the sunset aligns perfectly with Toronto's east and west streets. This phenomenon actually occurs a few times per year, but if recent sunsets are any indication, this one could be special.

On Saturday evening, for instance, Toronto's skyscraper's were still bathed in gold even as it had become dark outside thanks to the last lingering effects of the sun and its ideal alignment. And often the scene is even more stunning at street level.

Make sure to head outside and take a look at 6:18 p.m.”…

RT @mark_tarello: PASS IT ON! Supermoon on November 14th will be closest to earth since 1948. It will appear 14% bigger & 30% brighter.

Cheers, Ralph
