my family and my self have lived on the same piece of property for all most forty years.
my parent's house faces due west, mine due east. now i first noticed what i going to talk about a few years back.
the part of the property that my parents house is on has two southern yellow pines, that are about 50yards apart. when i was a kid, my brothers and i use to watch for when the sun went down between them and knew it was time to go in. sometimes our folks would have us all go out and watch the sun go down.
all through the year you could watch as the sun traveled between the two and see the seasons go by, and during the summer you could almost set your watch from the the sun moved in-between the top of the trees.
well one morning i woke up and noticed that the way the sun shined through the window looked different.
didn't think much of at first, then as the week went on i kept on noticing it. so i started watching where the sun would rise in the mornings, saw that it was more to the south than i remembered.
then i thought about the two trees so i started going over to my parents yard and watching the sun sets and sure enough it has moved further to the south. well as time has went on i have watched the sun move further south over years.now its not even between the trees any more.
and it moved the most right after the earthquake in japan. i know i've read all the science, and they tell me that it didn't move enough to notice. to that i say bullsh@@.
but if science is repeatable observations, i got over almost 40years worth that say their wrong, to bad i didn't document it. but wait i think i have pictures from when i was young, if not i know my mom does. gonna have to get them and see.
oh and if you think i'm nuts here is a link to nasa that says the earth has moved at least three time after earthquakes. but as always they basically tell you that it's nothing, and not to worry.
Japan Quake May Have Shortened Earth Days, Moved Axis
i've often wondered if that is why that they changed daylight savings time, that was during when i first noticed the difference in the suns position.
