summer solstice & fall equinox at Grabov Rat

Summer days at Grabov Rat :

This summer, when I arrived to Grabov Rat just a couple of days after the summer solstice, my gardening hours were from five to nine (nine thirty at most, DST) in the morning - I could not stand the Sun after that. Now, as fall equinox is approaching, it is quite dark at five and I donít start before six but I can work till ten or even ten thirty. Gardening has increased my awareness of the Sun movement.

The table below was assembled for Grabov Rat (160 40' E, 430 16' N) using US Naval Observatory Astronomical Applications software (http://aa.usno.navy.mil). Two days were selected: the summer solstice (Jun 21, 2006) and the fall equinox (Sep. 23, 2006).
