New York, on Apr 12, 2004

Taken Apr 8 at 3:15 PM and 5:00 PM and on Apr 12 around 11:45 AM. I noticed when taking this pic on Apr 12 that the sun here was very high in the sky. I use a tripod, and my camera had to be adjusted at an extreme angle, lot more then i usually need to set it.
The extremely high arc of the Sun is a factor of the tilt, and noted by many. On Apr 11 there was another Sweep of the Sun. Note that, as Steve mentioned, the tilt increased and wafting or rust colored debris in the tail can be seen as having increased as a result of the Sweep.
