This time I managed to get this one processed quickly. Click to embiggen.
We’re starting to get a nice symmetry to the skygrid now. Moving away from the solstice, the daylight hours are continuing to contract. Click to embiggen:
Next round of skygrid strips, a little delayed because I was working on processing the New York icosacomposites. Click to embiggen: Looks like I chose my time brackets pretty well, the light and darks are decently centered, and there’s a good border of black around the whole thing.
We’ve reached the maximum, now the shape will begin to contract. Click to embiggen:
Here’s a single-day reproduction of the sky samples from the solstice yesterday:
Another two weeks, another strip added to the skygrid. The solstice is immanent, and then the light starts to contract!
Continuing on. Only two weeks until the maximum extent, and then the daylight starts to contract:
It keeps progressing, daylight extending closer to the edges of the field. A little more than a month to go before it peaks and begins to wane. I’m just posting the averaged skygrid this time, the version with cropped boxes as pixels doesn’t really work well at this size and if I’m going to do
Another set of skygrid lines: Averaged: Squished: And, just for funsies, some single sky frames:
Here’s the latest processed skygrids, through April 15th. I’m going to try to get them out every 15 days if I can. Skygrid averaged (simple averaged squares of color): Skygrid squished (shrunk and cropped frames, no average): Detail of the squished grid: You can see the day lengthening pretty obviously, pushing back the dark frames
