Under the sun

There's one spot in the world right now,
where the sun is exactly overhead,

@moritz this is really fun. I have a related idea in my head: there's a math theorem I learned as an undergrad called Borsuk-Ulam, that guarantees there are always at least one pair of antipodes on a globe with the same temperature. It'd be fun to try to efficiently find such pairs based on live weather data. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borsuk%E

@alexwein ha! That sounds like a great project 😁

@scott can’t decide if data poetry or API demo. It’s a fine line.
