Tilt North
May 5, 2004

Whoa! Sun is way too far north this morning [May 5] in the Midwest. It also looked like the moon was well south this morning at 5 AM too.

The Sun's shadow [May 6] had moved 7/16 of an inch up my lamp here in
Virginia since yesterday - meaning the Sun has moved farther North since yesterday.

Something has occurred in the past day [May 9] The light overload for the cam in
Charlotte NC continues for an hour longer and the sun is in view for 1.5 to 2 hrs longer than normal. Usually the sun moves out of the frame by 9:15 AM, but today it is near 11 AM and the sun is still lingering and has shifted to the south by at least 15 degrees.
