O.K. I've told everyone before about this, but, it's egg balancing time again.
Autumn begins tomorrow, September 22, at 7:04pm Eastern Daylight Time. This is the exact time that the Sun will be directly over the equator, and its gravitational pull will be more or less equal from both the North and South poles. This is why an egg is the perfect thing to try to balance: solid exterior, liquid interior. Just take a *RAW* egg, place it on a flat surface, and try to balance it on its end. Hold the egg for a few seconds(to let its inside stabilize) and, with a little patience it will balance on its end. Mostly everyone tries the fat end, but, for a real challenge, try balancing it on its pointy end on a mirror! Note: While the Sun will be directly over the equator at 7:04pm this will work about 12 - 18 hours before and after this time.
Good Luck to all, see you Monday.(No computer at home yet)
