Today's one of two days of the year when sunlight penetrates the inner sanctum at Abu Simbel, Egypt.
It illuminates the statues of Re- Horakhte and Amon-Re as well as Ramses II.
It's been going on for thousands of years. Seems to me when Abu Simbel was relocated up the hill a bit so it wouldn't be flooded by Lake Nasser planners were careful to make sure this illumination wasn't harmed. It got set back day, that's all.
In housekeeping news I've turned off that infernal word verification nonsense. Or I think I have. If it is still there, please let me know so I can do something about it.
