Equinox sunrise video and photos
The morning of September 22, the date of the autumnal equinox, felt more like summer than autumn. The temperature was in the the 70s and the sky was cloud-free, with a layer of haze hanging low in the atmosphere, visible only at the horizon. The summer-like haze helped the rising sun appear as a glowing globe of light instead of a blinding source of light, as it often appears in a clear atmosphere. As the sun rose above the layer of haze, however, it quickly lost it's well-defined, spherical appearance.
Keep reading to see still photos of the sunrise sequence, showing the sun on the horizon to a position well above Washington.
