A year of sunsets, 2008
Jim Bumgardner collected over 35,000 flickr photos tagged sunset over the course of a year and graphed them on a time chart, revealing a sine wave. The highest point in the wave corresponds with the earliest time of sunset, and the shortest day of the year, around winter solstice, while the lowest point corresponds with the summer solstice.

Overall though I find it a little odd that most of the news found on google regarding google sites is from 2009, & hardly anything seems to exist after that… has this not caught on?
