At the Sunrise Café...

... you can talk 'til dawn. That photo was taken at 5:06 this morning, which is a good reason to remember to use the Althouse Portal to Amazon as you do you Saturday night shopping.Here's how things looked at 5:25: The "actual" sunrise time was 5:21 a.m. We're slowly closing in on the earliest sunrise time, which is 5:17. I've been able to do 5:21, so there's no reason to think 5:17 — 4 minutes earlier — will be difficult. The 5:17 will begin on June 10th and continue to June 19th. The latest...

2 phases of the sunrise.

5:23: That was rather sedate, so I stopped at my secondary vantage point. This is 5:39: The "actual" sunrise time was 5:22. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Today's sunrise in 3 distinct phases... at 5:14, 5:30, and 5:52.

It was most dramatic at 5:14, before the sun crossed the shoreline: The "actual" sunrise time was 5:23, and here's 5:30, with the sun in view, which makes it hard to photograph: But there was a cloud for the sun to slip behind so that made an entirely new concept of sunrise, here at 5:52: I hope that's not too much effulgence for one post, but I wanted to collect the wildly different presentations of a single sunrise.

Sunrise, 5:28.

Actual sunrise time today was 5:24. Compare this sunrise picture to the very different one I put up earlier this morning, which was done at 5:46, after the sun went behind a cloud, which is generally the best place for it if you want a good photograph. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

... you can talk until dawn. With moderation, of course. None of the extremism you find elsewhere. We're not moderating with extremism, so we won't moderate out extremism. It's just that whatever you write — moderate or extreme — is going to have to wait until we, in due time, release comments from the holding pen. Then why moderate?, you may ask, but I'll bet you have more interesting things to say.And think about using the Althouse Portal to do your Amazon shopping. (The link is always at th...

"A ghost was standing in a public toilet. I suggested that he go up in the sky and be part of the light."

"'I don’t want to do that,' he said./'Why?'/'Because I want to maintain my individuality.' I thought it was interesting that he would rather stand in the public toilet than join the light. Does he really treasure what he perceives as his individuality, or is he just simply afraid of making the move? Tell us what your story is in staying where you are now in life."From "Acorn" by Yoko Ono, which I just read.I liked this about the sun: "There are one thousand suns rising every day. We only see one...

At 5:26:52.

The actual sunrise time was 5:27 — rounded off to the nearest minute. I'd say I hit it right on the nose.But there's no sun in sight. Just solid clouds. It's what I call a Type #1 sunrise. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

I listened to about 3 minutes of CNN this morning as I drove home from my sunrise vantage point...

... and I feel like I can sum up what cable news will be saying over and over today on the topic of ending the coronavirus lockdown in the various states:Democrats are saying that we're all in this together and this is beyond politics but Republicans are playing politics. Republicans are saying that we're all in this together and this is beyond politics but Democrats are playing politics.The audio from CNN was imperfect — some home-based line? — and I could hear a man mumbling in the backgroun...

... you can type what you like at your socially distanced table. The photos were taken at 5:34 a.m. today. The one on the bottom — with the sun out of view — was taken 13 seconds after the top one. The sun had slipped under the low, thick cloud.If you find that amusing or interesting, remember me when you shop at Amazon and use the Althouse Portal. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

At the Sunrise Diner...

... we're open late. You will notice the social distancing: Moderated comments. The old back-and-forth is not happening. You can see that as an opportunity if you are an optimist. And do consider doing your shopping — if you've got any — through the Althouse portal to Amazon.The photograph of the relentlessly Type #1 sunrise was done at 5:37.

... you can talk about whatever you want... including our new plan for this blog, revealed in the comments to last night's café, here, and already bringing some encouragement.The sunrise was photographed at 5:34. The "actual" sunrise time was 5:32. I was at my vantage point at 5:33, but the sun had not crossed the line into my view yet. I can assure you that 5:34 was the earliest glimpse of the famous fiery orb. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Sunrise, 5:39.

The "actual" sunrise time was 5:35. How much earlier can the sunrise get? 18 minutes earlier. That's not so different, is it? I've made it this far. When I began my running for the sunrise (on September 9th), it was a 5:57 CDT sunrise. Each day since April 26th has been my earliest sunrise in this running ritual. I'll max out on June 10, with the 5:17 sunrise, and that will continue through June 19th, after which we will will begin to emerge from the challenge of what to do with more than 15 h...

"I don't want to touch an object," I found myself saying, socially distancingly.

The sun was rising, and 3 young women... ... had asked me if I'd take a picture of them — the kind of request I've always happily agreed to. And here I was being stand-offish, in the manner of a person with OCD because they wanted to hand me their phone. It's covid19world, and we're all OCD now, so I couldn't go along with that, and I knew they'd understand. Actually, they'd probably have understood in pre-covid19world and simply regarded me as a person with a disability to be treated with empa...

The sunrise this morning was well-attended.

So many people out there at 5:45. The cloud cover was 0%, so it looked a way that I've seen many times. Type #3 I'll call it. The completely clear sky. Type #1 is a completely clouded sky, Type #2 is fully clouded but with some texture. The only other type I've identified is Type #5, which is distinctive, with a golden zigzag. I'll get to 10 types once I've seen the full annual cycle, which will be on September 8th.Anyway, this is the open thread to get you through the night and onto the next...
