7 inches wide x 7 inches high

Equal amount of day and night. But the next day has less light. So does the one after that. And another. And that's how it is after the Autumnal Equinox. This just continues and continues for three months when the Earth stalls in its travels around the Sun. It has to take that left-hand turn around the end of its ellipse, and that curve causes the amount of daylight to stay about the same until—until—it lengthens again. And so it goes, around and around, and around again. This is what we do.
