Subject:March Equinox now past, almost time to fix up our clocks :-)

Hi all

Yep, nearly that time of year when we realign with Sydney time. This Sunday week.

Great little link below, you can change month and year, by manually altering the hyperlink. Or clicking on their date option (just below their heading). You can also change countries. Boy, I could have used one of these at school when I was in that geography/physics class trying to figure out all those “bits and bobs and what ifs”.


March 20 last night. Our Equinox (sun was directly over Equator at 8:29pm)
Brisbane Sunrise 5:51AM  Sunset 5:59PM
March 25 will be our most equal day
due to a light lingering "quirkiness" thing. Technical term : “refraction” 
Brisbane Sunrise 5:53AM  Sunset 5:53PM 11hrs 59 minutes 43 seconds
almost, not quite, 12 hours.

December 21 was our Longest day, ie sun was furthest to the south over Tropic of Capricorn
