Sun Clock

Happy solstice, everybody! Before you head out to jump your bonfires and search for your magic fern blossoms, you may want to check to see whether it is night or day. To that end, this map can help:

sun,closck,clock,sun clock

There are a bunch of versions of this out there, but this one's especially attractive. This image, from timeanddate.com, shows the division of night and day on the Earth's surface at 5:45am UTC, June 20, 2009 - this morning, the precise moment of the summer solstice.

What would be cool is if I could embed a sun clock in this post so that it would always be current. It seems like the sort of thing that ought to be possible, but unfortunately I am dumb, so I can't figure out how to do it. And, unlike the proverbial broken clock, this one will only be accurate once a year; still, you can click on it to see the present night/day situation.

Come to think of it, the next summer solstice will happen at a different time of day, so this clock won't ever be entirely accurate again. Shoot.

Each Coach handbags is made with great attention to detail. The artisans inspect each Coach Legacy individually after it's completed to make sure that only the best leaves the factory floors. This of course means that you will not find Coach Luggage unexpected faults after spending a few hundred dollars on a bag. There's a quality control process that each Coach Madison must go through before it reaches a store, and of course they are returnable if you find something amiss (not that you are likely to).

There are actually plenty of particulars like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice point to convey up.
