Sunrise Sunset is Awesome
Sunrise Sunset, every day it’s like that, and it’s cool when you can catch both. Don Juan said you learn the most in the hour during sunset. I think this is pretty true, you are gaining what you need or you have accomplished something, and the sunset is a way of transitioning to sleep and relaxation, well for most of us. There are those nocturnal ones who stay up at night and sleep at day. There has to be these types, and they are a natural thing.
So what about sunrise? If you could pick sunrise or sunset which would it be? I mean if you could live in a house that faces east on a mountain or west on a mountain which side would you prefer? I say, I would like a room on the top of the mountain with glass walls on either side so I could see the sunrise and the sunset. Or maybe just camp up there and hang out for a minute. Mountaintops are cool, they are a place of sanctuary, peace and hope. Sunrise Sunset, such a dynamic interplay of forces between the two…especially on a mountaintop…
Sunrise Sunset, Moonrise, Moonset
Sometimes the moon sets at the same time the sun is rising, or the sun is setting and then the moon rises. This is a spectacular sight to see. If you ever get the chance, try to watch the moon set and the sun rise, it’s cool..It is moments of natural beauty and awe like this that inspire us and that we remember…
Sunrise Sunset Could Be either One
The above is a sunrise sunset it could be either one, and it was made with a vertical and horizontal element, and with circles around it, on purpose…
Sunrise Sunset Quotes
There’s never one sunrise the same or one sunset the same.
Get outside. Watch the sunrise. Watch the sunset. How does that make you feel? Does it make you feel big or tiny? Because there’s something good about feeling both.
There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.
Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.
Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise.
George Washington Carver
For me optimism is two lovers walking into the sunset arm in arm. Or maybe into the sunrise – whatever appeals to you.
What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?
E. M. Forster
Life is a great sunrise. I do not see why death should not be an even greater one.
Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.
For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us.
Richard H. Baker
At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear. It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us. You can love completely without complete understanding.
I like that time is marked by each sunrise and sunset whether or not you actually see it.
Sunrise offered a very beautiful spectacle; the water was quite unruffled, but the motion communicated by the tides was so great that, although there was not a breath of air stirring, the sea heaved slowly with a grand and majestic motion.
“The morning always has a way of creeping up on me and peeking in my bedroom windows. The sunrise is such a pervert.”
“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”
“Sunrise paints the sky with pinks and the sunset with peaches. Cool to warm. So is the progression from childhood to old age.”
“There’s always a story. It’s all stories, really. The sun coming up every day is a story. Everything’s got a story in it. Change the story, change the world.”
“At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.”
“What breaks in daybreak? Is it the night? Is it the sun, cracked in two by the horizon like an egg, spilling out light?”
“Ô, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.”
Sunrise Sunset Information (Colors)
As light travels throught the atmosphere, the colors are scattered by the air molecules and airborne particles, this changes the final colors that you see. What happens is the shorter wavelength components of the light spectrum, such as blue and green, these colors scatter more strongly, and they are removed from the sunbeam. At sunrise and sunset, when the path that the light travels through the atmosphere is made longer by the angle, the blue and green components are removed. This leaves the longer wavelength orange and red colors we see at sunrise sunset. The remaining orange and red sunlight can then be scattered by water droplets in the clouds and other relatively large particles. This causes the horizon to light up red and orange. A phenomenon called Rayleigh scattering causes the removal of the shorter wavelengths of light molecules and particles much smaller than the wavelength of visible light (less than 50 nm in diameter). Mie scattering is what causes the light to be scattered by clouds, and is also responsible for the daytime halo of white light around the Sun.
The colors at sunset are usually brighter and more vivid than the sunrise, because the evening air contains more water, gas, and microscopic particles than the morning air.
Sunrise Sunset is always an interesting thing to observe. Sometimes we catch a glimpse just driving down the road, or maybe we are out, or in a skyscraper at work, or maybe we have a view from a skyscraper. It’s always different. The Egyptians used to say that the sun God Ra used to sail across the evening sky every night at sunset…
