A Year of Sunrises

That the Sun doesn't always rise (or set) in the same direction is well known but many of us do not pay attention to the details, month--by--month as the year passes by.

In this Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) post, a full year of monthly sunrises is featured. The camera is always facing due east--the cardinal compass point that is at 90 degrees. Taken from the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. 

The images are lovely, too.
