Summer Twilight

I doubt that this is the highest point in town, but it's certainly catching the last rays of sunlight around 9:00. There aren't many areas of Moseley that permit a view of the sun at its descent, but the church steeple and St. Mary's Row are two of them. The nice thing about this steeple is that the opposite side is also likely to be lit at dawn.

Midsummer (more or less)

The sun is coming over the horizon just about now. Too bad it's overcast, and I'm not so high up as to see it. This map comes from Skyview Cafe, which is a java-based interactive star chart and ephemeris. I've plugged in Moseley coordinates: 52 degrees 26 minutes North, 1 degree 52 minutes West, which puts us just south of the bog in Swanshurst Park (in a boat, if we're lucky). Standing at that point and looking north, the sun will be coming over the horizon at a point due North-East, and will return below the horizon at a point due North-West.
