Night and Day

Categories: Geography General, Atmosphere
Just a very quick post to flag up two decent resources, one which I found through sln and the other through Google Earth Hacks. The first is something which might be useful when we do the atmosphere topic for showing the changing position of the sun in the Northern Hemsiphere throughout the year. I showed this briefly to Higher today, after getting into a discussion yesterday about why in some countries during the summer it never gets dark. The second is topical, and focuses on the huge forest fires which have been ripping through parts of Greece and other Southern European countries. You can download the kml to see the extent of the fires here. I've include a reuters new report above from youtube.
