DMX RADAR at 7:07 AM on 22 Sept 2004
This is always a bad time of year for driving near dawn and dusk. The sun rises directly east and sets directly west, which lines up nicely with many of our east-west roads. Des Moines RADAR indicated the sun rose directly east by the eastward pointing solar spike. About a year ago, I made this movie of the movement of the solar spike during sunset for the timeperiod of a year.
