What a wonderful creation of God the Almighty,
Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient-mighty!
Sun and moon, stars and planets, sky and earth, hills and mountainside
Nature’s manifestation-God’s magnificence- indeed great!
Shadows -morning to noon and noon to evening lovely watch
Long shadows getting smaller and smaller-growing taller
And taller- bad friendship morn to noon shadow like and good
Friendship is like noon to evening shadow like- nature’s beauty!
Lack of shadow is beautiful!Happens twice a year,
For places between twenty three point five plus and minus
Degrees latitude! The Sun is almost never exactly overhead
At noon, but transits a bit lower in altitude, a bit
To the north or south. Earth’s rotation axis is inclined
To the plane of its revolution around the Sun – varies seasons!.
Sun, in its highest point of the day, will move south to North
Of the celestial equator-Uttarayan and Dakshinayanin a year!.
The northern most and southern most two solstices,
And the crossing of the Sun across the equator two equinoxes.
For people living between the degrees referred the Sun’s declination
Equals to their latitude twice On these two days, the Sun
Will be exactly overhead at noon and will not cast a shadow on the ground.
This Zero Shadow Day falls today in Namakkal District of Tamil Nadu!
