Abu Dhabi Weather

Wednesday, December 22, 2010


I've never lived in a place in which I could easily see the sunset. When we moved in to an apartment where we had a clear view of the sunset, I thought that the novelty would wear off fairly quickly. It didn't. While I don't set my alarm to make sure that I see it, I do like to look out the window when I see the sunlight change to red. December 22nd officially being the shortest day of the year in Abu Dhabi. Unfortunately, because it was hazy the 21st and 22nd, here is a photo of the sunset on the 20th of December in which you can see where the sun hits the horizon.

In this photo, you can see where the sun was around June 20, the longest day of the year.

To give some perspective, here is a picture of the horizon with the Emirates palace on the left and Marina Mall on the right.
While I understand the science of it, I am still amazed at the amount that the sun sun moves on the horizon throughout the year.
