North in Alaska
on Sep 19, 2004

The sun seting to far North over Alaska.

Scammon Bay is the same latitude as Denali, which expects the Sun to be at Azi 218° and Alt 21° at 4:15 in the afternoon. This is a direct WEST cam, but the Sun can be seen shining directly at the cam from the lefthand side, approximately Azi 255°. This is in the extreme NORTH, appropriate for the Earth wobble which places the Earth tilted so the Sun is North over the central Pacific.
