The sun only rises accurately due east and sets accurately due west at the Equinoxes on March 20th and September 22nd this year other times it is a bit to the north or south of east and west.
Look at trees. In the northern hemisphere moss grows on the southern side and in the southern hemisphere it grows on the northern side.
OK LOL! The camels ears.....Hee hee.. assuming I am on a camel! LOL..Some help you will be out in the desert! We might end up in "Tin Buck Two!!"
Timbuctoo (Timbuktu, Tombouctou) is a major trading town smack bang in the middle of Mali, West Africa. It was founded by the Tuareg in the 10th century and at 1 time was an intellectual and spiritual Islamic capital.
Karen the time of the equinox with respect to our day (assuming UK time) varies a bit with the precise phasing of the earth's orbit and solar day and leap years this year is a leap year so the whole day adjustment tends to push the equinoxes towards their earliest date positions in the year.
According to my Cockney friends, your North and South is between your nose and your chin.

Lovers of leap years have missed out on one recently as 2000 being divisible by 500 lost its status, If I had been born on February 29 1920 I would not reach the age of adultery until the end of this month.
