Sunrise on March 22 over the Western Canal in Tempe, AZ.

Taking the lazy-way out again by pilfering the Astronomy Picture of the Day from a few days ago, I just thought this one was unusually striking. The Western Canal runs directly east-to-west, so one day after the vernal equinox (the one day being due to Tempe's latitudinal position), the sun rises exactly in alignment with the Canal, yielding this blazing image. How cool is that!
