    If you are referring to Herbert's diagram, that diagram would have to be
    placed in the center of a sheet of paper approximately 6X the height and
    width of the diagram's width to accommodate the sun's diameter. That
    being done, it would appear the diagram is "splitting hairs."
    Nonetheless, it was interesting to me as it challenged my assumption
    that the equinox always occurred at 0d declination.
