Cloudy Day 🙁 — doesnt look like much of the rest of the country fared much better
(Red dot is approximate location of Vermilion County, Illinois)
So — good thing there was a Plan B in case this exact thing happened
Plan B: Take advantage of the latest possible clear sunset close to the solstice!!
Comparison Review: This was the Equinox on September 23rd — sun setting due west.
Very Near the actual solstice date, same location as Equinox photo
The sun sets 23.5 degrees south of its Equinox location
View Southwest as sun sinks below the horizon
2 Days following the Solstice skies finally clear
Little, if any, northward movement of the sun so far
