Happy Equinox

At eighteen minutes past ten tonight, neither the north pole nor the south will be pointing towards or away from the sun and the sun will be overhead the equator. It is the autumnal equinox and the sun will spend the next six months overhead the southern hemisphere. During this time it will rise south of east and set south of west.

To celebrate this I headed up to one of my favourite spots last night, Halnaker Windmill, and took this photo. The clouds and light were doing extraordinary things, one of which I am still investigating and will hopefully be able to reveal more about.
