The day at least in my locale, that the sun will rise and set at exactly 180 degrees from each other. It's also FULL MOON this date.

Kind of curious to know how different this is where you live.

Forgive my ignorance and lack of knowledge of the subject, but, what does this mean for us railroad photogrpahers? Just curious.

Thanks.

It means that if you get east-west trains exactly the same amount of time from the zenith, headed in opposite directions, they will have the same light.

Yeah at the start of Fall and Spring. Earlier south later to the North. Works great for getting the sun lined up with East-West lines.
