Admiring a sun setting is part of pleasure while visiting a new country… But I can’t explain why it is so unique and special for me in Africa πŸ˜‰

Do you feel the same for your country or for an another location?

Sunset, also known as sundown, is the daily disappearance of the sun below the horizon due to Earth’s rotation. As viewed from everywhere on Earth (except the North and South poles), the equinox Sun sets due west at the moment of both the Spring and Autumn equinox. As viewed from the Northern Hemisphere, the sun sets to the northwest (or not at all) in the Northern hemisphere’s spring and summer, and to the southwest in the autumn and winter; these seasons are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere.

The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the upper limb of the Sun disappears below the horizon. Near the horizon, atmospheric refraction causes sunlight  rays to be distorted to such an extent that geometrically the solar disk is already about one diameter below the horizon when a sunset is observed.

  1. Wow Mizou,
    You can’t beat those African sunsets. Synchronicity, I have in draft form a post on the importance of goodbyes.
    I have an African (Gambian) sunset photo and quote at the top. I was just ready to finish off when I looked at reader πŸ™‚πŸ˜

      1. I would have done it by now but am also giving a link to another’s blog but word press is not playing. I can’t just reblog the other persons blog as I want to add my sunset photo to my commentary. I will keep at it.🌞

  2. For me its the sunrise in the Tennessee mounains. I prefer sunrise because I’m such a morning person. Since my ancestors have lived in the mountains of Tennessee or North Carolina since the 1700s, I think the connection to the mountains and the peace I feel here is in my DNA.
