[TIPS] - everystockphoto.com - and eternal sunsets

- - - snip - - -
everystockphoto.com is a search engine for creative commons photos, located in Vancouver, BC. We aim to be a community for designers, developers, photographers and other media publishers who want better, easier access to license-specific media on the web.

And here's a bonus for every one of you who enjoys a sunset. This page: http://www.eternalsunset.net/more.php has links to cameras around the world that will show you sunset, almost at any time during the day. Not quite, but close. There's also a map at the bottom of the page that shows the areas of the earth in daylight and in darkness. Notice the shape of the two areas? What's coming up soon?
 
Does that remind you of the clock at nist (http://nist.time.gov/timezone.cgi?UTC/s/2/java) that we talked about last year? How many of you will be doing that with your students again this year? Take a screenshot (Alt-PrintScreen) of that page once a week and post it on your bulletin board. Watch the seasons change as the maps change.
