    Actually, it’s the plane of the earth’s orbit that aligns with the plane of the earth’s equator. That’s not the same thing as “the axis of the sun”.

    Actually, it will be a while yet before the nights begin to be longer than the days.

    Actually, the line of intersection between the plane of the earth’s orbit amd the plane of the earth’s equator points directly at the sun. And twilight doesn’t count as day, so the length of the day (sunrise to sunset) equals the length of the night (sunset to sunrise). Surprisingly the time it takes for the disk of the sun to cross the horizon is only about two minutes.

    Actually, Ludwig probably doesn’t care as long as he can nap

    Fictionally is sounded like a good excuse to nap twice.

    The Lizards in my yard are already wearing long sleeves. That means the winter will be colder.

    Actually, on a equinox the sun sets directly in the west only if you are on the equator.

    ; ) Penguins have been spotted wearing sweaters… Thinking about adding additional insulation to the house…

    And only 94 shopping days until Christmas.

    Thad depends upon how far north or south of the equator you are. At the 45th parallel there are about 12 hours of daylight today.

    I’m thinking that “a normal to the sun lies on the plane of the Earth’s equator” is a good fix (although I’ve always said “normal to the Earth’s axis”).

    You forgot to use the word “actually”.

    Thank you, it’s a relief to see someone understands what’s going on here, there is a lot of bad science being bandied about.

    Actually, Rudy’s ears perk up at the word “nap”…I mean apparently they perk up…
