Gauge for Length of Day (showing Solstices & Equinoxes)


#82

Happy Spring Equinox! (or Fall Equinox if you’re south of the equator)

temp

The 0.4% variance is because the sunrise and sunset in webCoRE rounds to the nearest minute. My next project with this is to incorporate the precise second available in the new $twcweather.

$twcweather.conditions.sunriseTimeLocal >>> "2018-12-19T07:28:58-0700"
$twcweather.conditions.sunsetTimeLocal  >>> "2018-12-19T17:10:52-0700"

Once this new data has been implemented, my dial should be spot on.


#83

We are now exactly halfway thru Spring… So for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, today begins the 3 month quarter with the most amount of sunlight. (there should really be a name for this)

NOTE:
For the remainder of this thread, unless stated otherwise, all of my data references are going to be for a location in the Northern Hemisphere. For those of you below the equator, the exact opposite should be true… (IE: 95% maximum sunlight for us would be 5% maximum sunlight for you)


#84

We are currently dealing with a fairly bad heat wave…

I find it especially interesting seeing the gauge on my Dashboard…
We are currently at 95% of maximum sunlight.
(yet still 26 days until the Solstice)

95percent

I guess in a way, approaching the Solstice is like approaching “High Noon”
