Everyone is welcome.

The reason for participating is to have fun, see other parts of the world and to help document the sun’s path on this particular day, and to see the end results.  It’s about coming together as a community and sharing our experiences.

Your photo should be posted at the Facebook event or on the XplorMor Facebook page as soon as possible once taken so we may watch the sun’s progression around the globe on this particular day.  Please note: When the project day is over, photos will be moved into a gallery on the XplorMor page, and featured here at xplormor.com.

Any other information you would like to share

If you would like to be in the image, that’s your choice! And, if the weather is bad, just get creative. Last year we had photos posted showing snow, rain, wind, and so forth. Attendees were creative with color from reflecting glass hearts to painted walls that stood out on the gray day.

The following website links give times for the sunset or sunrise on any given day. The best one is starred* as you can download calendar events into Outlook and set a reminder:
