Sun Up At Quorum tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the day if you want to see Sun Up At Quorum do its thing!

Time: 12:34 PM
Location: N 32° 56.910 W 096° 49.484, near the intersection of Landmark Boulevard and and Quorum Drive in Addison.

The latest forecast is partly cloudy, but I haven't got anything better to do and it's only 3 miles from where I live.

It's an equinox work, so you can see what it does every March 21st at 12:34 PM and September 21st at 1:20 PM if it's sufficiently sunny out. For the curious, at those times the sun's rays pass through the aperture in the sculpture and strike the sphere on the ground below.

...

If you're going to be in the area, you can also do a little waymarking -- Centura Pendulum is a Foucault pendulum in the lobby of the Centura office building on Dallas Parkway just south of Spring Valley.
