Sunrise Sunset

Pine Island

Everybody loves pretty sunsets. We also like pretty sunrises when we get a chance to see them. Mysteriously, sights of pretty sunsets seem to greatly outnumber pretty sunrises. Why is that?

There's the old saw about "Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning. Red sky at night, sailor's delight." As far as I can tell, that's bunk.

I speculate that people (including us) see many more sunsets than sunrises. We're asleep most of the time when the sun comes up. That's probably true.

Other than that, I'm at a loss for a (a) confirmation that it's really true, or (b) why? I'll be that my blog readers can offer a few.

A spectacular sunrise marked by shadows of over the horizon clouds.
