A year of sunrises

We’re between the extremes now, in a place of balance, near an equinox. This composite image shows how the sun moves along your horizon each day at sunset and sunrise, as Earth moves in orbit around the sun.

A mountain ridgeline at dawn over a city, with 12 suns just over the horizon spaced out from each other.
