About this time every year I start to get obsessed with the sunset. Since we’re close to the equinox, the sunlight is disappearing at the fastest rate we’ll see all year. This fact alone separates me from the people who talk about autumn as their favorite season. Beautiful colors, apples and pumpkins, crisp temperatures, and clear blue skies. Sure. I won’t say those things aren’t nice. But the darkness creeps in like a mist. It smiles an oily smile as it unfolds umbrellas and spreads out blankets, because it knows with celestial mechanical precision that nothing but December can dislodge it. And December is on vacation. December is somewhere far away, drinking margaritas and playing poker with Santa Claus.

And if you want to help me fix it or report a bug, here is the Github repository: https://github.com/gulley/Sunset-Visualization
LATE-BREAKING NEWS: I want to pass on my grateful acknowledgment of help from David Wey and Josh Natanson who, sure enough, did fork and improve my code on Github. Y’know, there’s something to this collaboration business. It’s a real rush when somebody magically reaches out and helps you fix something that you created. Thanks guys!
