Happy Summer!
Panorama at Sunrise on the Summer Solstice 
The walkway right next to the "m" in points directly to the southeast position of the sun at the winter solstice. This shows the range of sun travel during the solstice intervals.
This is the position of the sun at the exact time of the summer solstice.

The two images at the top are the current 2018 Winter Solstice and 2019 Summer Solstice.
During winter, the sun is directly behind the camera shooting head-on into Coffeepot Rock.
The sun comes up far to the right of where the camera is … (29 comments)

summer solstice: Throwback Thursday - Shadows of the Solstice In Red Rock Country - 12/21/17 06:59 PM
Sedona Solstice
The image above was taken on the Solstice this morning. Over the years I have watched and compared the shadows created by the sun as it rises in the morning.
Today I took this image of Coffeepot Rock and noticed something different that I didn't realize before. There are no real shadows on the red rock. The sun is at it's south-eastern most point today and the shadows are very slight.
My back wall is perpendicular to the sun on this date. Starting tomorrowthe sun will appear to be moving back to the north. I was pretty sure I had an image of Coffeepot on … (19 comments)

summer solstice: All Time Record Temperature In Sedona On the Summer Solstice! - 06/21/16 05:05 AM
Hottest Day On Record In Sedona
3º Higher Than Previous Record
I am always the first person to say that Sedona is much cooler than Phoenix or the Valley.  Well, yesterday, our temps were not far off of record setting temps in Phoenix!  I never thought I would ever see a temperature as high as 112 in Sedona.  We have spent many vacations on the Colorado River where temps can hover around 120º. So heat is not foreign to us but NEVER in Sedona. 
Normally - the coolest part of the day is right after sun up, unless a front moves in.  During summer, we … (15 comments)

summer solstice: See How Our Arizona Native Americans Made a "Solar Calendar". - 06/28/14 11:59 PM
I have heard a lot about the V-Bar-V Heritage Site.
 The Summer Solstice was upon us, so this was an opportunity to see this site and how the sunlight affected the shadows on the petroglyphs. The Heritage Site isn't far off the I-17 about 2 hours north of Phoenix. You take the same exit you would to go to Sedona from Phoenix.  The only difference is that you go right rather than left.  Go to this site and enlarge the google map to get a better map.

This picture diagrams some of the petroglyphs and rocks that were strategically placed … (0 comments)
