My Solar Observatory!

Do you miss the scenes from my 5th Floor Window? I know some of you have already seen my sunset posts in the past, but I am sure you will not be tired looking at them, just like me! I have a lot of different styles of sunsets again!

This is the wide angle shot of my horizon. At the left is the most prominent structure of the church, at the right is the 2nd prominent structure, which is the TV station tower. I am putting this wide angle shot as a reference for all the shots taken for the whole year!

 January 2012: This is where the sun is a year ago, this position is at the left of the church in the first photo. I just have zoomed in closer because these electric posts are not visible in the first photo wide angle shot.

 March 2012: This month you can see the big leap of the sun from the extreme left of the church to the right! 

 May 2012: This is at the TV station tower at the extreme right in the first photo. In a matter of two months that is the movement of the sun in photos.

July 2012: The sun now moved even to the extreme right of the TV Tower!

 August 2012: This month the sun visible returned back to just at the right of the church! It seemed to have jumped far enough to the left in just one month.

 October 2012: again, the sun is already nearing the church after 4 months of moving left

December 2012: at the end of the year it returned to where it came from in January!

It is amazing to see and record the observations of the sun's movements in a year! I am fascinated with my records and i am eager to show them with my blogger friends around the world. This movement of the sun is very well documented in scientific observatories and expressed in very complicated equations of the astronomers and scientists, that most of us might not even want to look at. 

My 5th Floor Window is now transformed as my Astronomic Observation Station, or to be more precise, My Solar Observatory! Happy Weekend everyone.

    1. Hi Donna, thank you, but I am sorry your "Donna" link here is a dead end, i can only see the blogs you follow not the posts. I wonder if you are the Donna of gardenseyeview or gardenwalkgardentalk. I cannot comment on your site if you are not one of the two i mentioned.

  6. Very dramatic red skies. But it looks like the tv tower is taller than the church.

    By the way, I tried a different link hope it works better.

  7. Andrea, I think it was your house that moved, relative to the sun and the markers in your neighborhood.

    Ahahahaha. Joke lang, ha?

    1. Oh yes of course, we all know that I am sure! I just try to make obvious the obvious! I even thought of verbalizing that i think the earth rushed in some months, but maybe that's not for SWF. By the way, do you still maintain a blogsite, as i've tried in the past to see your posts but there's none!

    2. The photos are in the flickr site. The link on my username is a blogsite thats difficult for me to maintain.

  9. Hi Andrea . . . You have a fabulous observatory and have captured stunning photographs. The sun may not move but it surely does paint the sky bright. You are lucky to witness these incredible sky paintings. Thanks for sharing your observations. It is great to see your view on the world. Hope you are well and a belated Happy New Year. Carol
