In Leelanau, ... Looking Back

Empire  Beach  Sunset

To behold a Leelanau sunset,

Is to glimpse a bit of heaven from earth.

But not in real time.

For to look at a Leelanau sunset,

Is to look back in time -

About 8.3 minutes ago to be precise.

Which is the time it takes for our sunlight

To make its 93 million mile journey

To the Land of Delight.

So, the sun actually sets eight plus minutes before the sunset image we view from our little planet.

Indeed, everything we see in this universe is time delayed,

By milliseconds to millions of years,

Depending upon its distance from our eyes.

In other words, ...

In Leelanau and beyond,

Now is an illusion.


See You In Leelanau Up North,

Chris
