Darkness or Light?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Michael Jewels, Dec 7, 2004.

  1. I found this in my travels on the web, and thought it was worth sharing.


    The light blue dot is where the sun is at the moment. Check back every hour or so and see how the map moves. Check back at about 5 O' clock EDT (Eastern Daylight Time) and you can see how northern Alaska meets the night before the southern part of the state. :cool:

    Gets you jealous of the people in South America, Australia and New Zealand, doesn't it?


    Mike ;)

    Thanks Mike, that's pretty cool!
  5. Edit: Alaska is in darkness right now, as is most of the extreme northern hemisphere, but when it gets what little daylight that it does at this time of the year, Alaska slips into darkness* from north to south.

    I thought it was interesting. :p

    Mike :D

    That's pretty cool man. Is it live, or does it move on the page by itself, or do you have to reload the page to see it move?
  7. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you have to reload the page to see it move.

    Australia's waking up now. :D

    Oooo - look at it now; it's an almost perfect Yin/Yang symbol. :cool:
