Sunrise Earth

That’s a sunrise in a place where the opportunity to see a real sunrise is quite a commodity…even if it’s just blocks away.  Thankfully, for people like us, those folks at the Discovery channel figured out a way to make it a little bit easier to ease into a day that demands a sunrise.

It’s called Sunrise Earth, and it only really makes sense if you turn on your TV tomorrow morning and meet the day with a backdrop of fishermen on a lake in China, or Polar Bears crossing icebergs or a fire-rimmed peak in the Alps.  It just works.  The imagination can do wonders.

Maybe it’s a sad commentary on the life of a city-dweller – turning to TV for a sunrise.  But hey, whatever gets you up in the morning.

    I love Sunrise Earth!

    It is strangely addictive… but as you said “It just works.” Also it is visually stunning in HD.

    The program is “technically” a sweet idea, but “really” boring to watch.

    I mean, I can imagine watching it once, and getting drawn in and enjoying an entire sunrise…but how many people are going to do this more than once ever? Three? Five?
