Thu 7:00 a.m.7:02 p.m. 11:02 p.m. 9:34a.m. We are on the verge of an explosion. The warmer weather that we have experienced during the past several weeks has caused my maple " frees to spring into life with buds that look like they are ready to flower. Make no mistake; it isn't spring yet, but the process has begun. From ~." March 5 through April 5, with the first day of spring squarely in between, we will be proceeding through a metamorphosis. On March 5 the ~t , sun in southeastern PA rises to a noontime (due south) altitude of 44 degrees. By April 5 the sun's due south altitude,.which is the greatest angular distance above the horizon that the sun can achieve for that day, is 56 degrees. That is a change of 12 degrees. Compare this to the difference in the sun's summer/winter solstice altitude during the same 31 day cycle, which is less than one degree, and you may understand why I am so excited. Although May is the transition period between cool to warm because the Earth continues to absorb far more energy than it is reradiating i back into space at night, it is this t5-(~y period before and after the ~luinoxes that the stm makes its grea~atn~ or 1~ in altitud~ for the year. Like~ise, the amount of time that the sun is above the horizon also explodes as we move from 11 hours, 29 minutes of sunlight to 12 hours, 53 minutes that Sol is visible, an increase of 1 hour, 24 minutes in just one month. Add the commencement of Daylight Saving Tune early on Sunday morning, March 12, and sunset will occur one hour later on that same day. The sun will also rise an hour later tricking us into believing that the amount of daylight has yet again exploded. It feels that way because many of~ are still asleep at the time of sunrise Sunday morning so we only notice the extended time of sunset. What a difference that makes in the way I feel, even though air temperatures are still cool for the most part. So why go to Florida, the land of snakes and swamps, on Spring Break when in just 30 some days the tanning rays of the sun will be just as effective here? I never ~ould figure that out--wink, wink! www.astronomy.org March 10 through March 16 Shows Nightly at 7:30 Rated R Admission:Adult $15.00 Senior & Child 513.00 Every Tuesday $10.00 Admission For More Information Call 310-510-0179 THE ATAUNA ISLANDER Friday, March 10, 2017 i 11
