Spin Art: Earth Rotation Style

We sat on the beach this week and watched the sunsets: one of my favorite activities. My kids were amazed at how fast the sun disappeared once it reached the horizon. All day it seemed to creep across the sky in almost imperceptible increments, but once it sets, you can tell how fast the earth is spinning, swallowing the sun in a gigantic, quick gulp.


  1. " a gigantic quick, gulp." Love that description! Although the time frame is quick, the pictures convey peace and patience. Beautiful!

  2. It was lovely and peaceful, Lynn! I could have sat there all night, and wished it took a little longer!
