Uncle Jim, the weather man in Fern Nook, sent me
some interesting places to explore.

Archaeoastronomy calculates exactly how many days, hours and
minutes it is from now until each of the Equinoxes,
Solstices and Cross-Quarters.

The Astronomical Information Center has an enormous
amount of information about the heavens. If you put in
your exact location you can calculate the sunrises and
sunsets for the year. This will be very useful for me
when I begin on my book about a year of Fern Nook sunrises
as seen from the front porch.

Genesis 1:14-19
Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the
heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for
signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for
lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the
earth"; and it was so.

Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the
day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the
stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to
give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the
night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw
that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the
fourth day.
