  • The March of the Setting Sun to the Summer Solstice

    Edward Quinto

    From where I left off in my last article on the migration of the setting sun to the winter

    solstice, the setting sun has reached its most southerly point, the winter solstice from my

    viewpoint high in the Sun Residences last Dec. 22, 2014. After that date, the sun has

    reversed direction and has been moving north, to my right from my observation window

    post. The golden sun will reach it most northern point on 22 June 2015, the day of the

    summer solstice. The summer solstice is the longest day and the shortest night in the

    northern hemisphere. After that date, the sun will once again reverse direction and begin its

    southerly march to reach its most southern point on 22 December 2015, the winter solstice.

    This photo was taken from my western window observation post. Take note of the PLDT

    tower (right) for it will be my reference point. Watch the setting sun approach it as it moves

    north (to the left), passes through it and ultimately ventures out of it as the sun moves on to

    its northerly trek. The sun from the photo above is still located to the left of the PLDT Tower.

    The sun, on its daily course, is now moving towards the PLDT Tower (to the right)

  • A few days more and the sun is now approaching Mt. Samat, Bataan

  • The setting sun with Mt. Samat of Bataan to its right

  • Take note of the small Cemex Cement Plant Bldg located to the right of the PLDT Tower

  • A thick cloud along the horizon that appears like a huge tsunami about to strike the ships

  • The sun approaches the left side of the PLDT Tower

    The sun has reached the PLDT Tower with Mt. Samat in Bataan now to its left

  • The sun is brightly shining through the central slit of the PLDT Tower

  • The Sun is leaving the right side of the PLDT Tower on its march to the North (to the right)

  • The sun has moved out of the PLDT Tower and is now on its right side

  • The sun is now moving away from the PLDT Tower

  • The Bataan Cross atop Mt. Samat located close to the right side of the PLDT Tower

    The sun is now approaching the Cemex Cement Plant Bldg located along Manila Bay

  • The sun is now atop the cement plant bldg

  • The marching sun has now moved far away from the cement plant

  • My last photo as I am moving out of this condo unit. Hopefully, if I do get to transfer to my

    new condo unit with windows facing the northwest and east I might be able to capture the

    most northerly point of the setting sun on the summer solstice (22 June 2015).

    AUF WIEDERSEHN!!!!
