The spring equinox is actually around 1:00 PM on March 20 but that is a Thursday and I have to work. I have another Meetup scheduled for March 22 so let's try March 21 to get the sunrise in line with the Capitol, Washington monument and Lincoln memorial. Last year we stood at the Lincoln memorial and I thought the Netherlands Carillon might give up a little higher perspective. Maybe the scaffolding will be removed from the Washington by then. Currently it surrounds the bottom 25%.
We will meet around 6:45 with sunrise scheduled for 7:10. There is usually good sky color if it is clear. And maybe it will be a little warmer this year. Afterward I suggest we get some breakfast at Bayou. Best beignets in Arlington.
