I was reading an article on CNN.com about the new plan for a 1,776 foot tall building to replace the old World Trade Center towers. Now, as I was reading, I saw that the architect has calculated the arc of the sun so that on every September 11, between 8:46 a.m. and 10:28 a.m. (the times that the two planes hit), the buildings will cast no shadow. Now, someone explain to me how anything that tall, at that degree of latitude, can produce no shadow. I mean in New York? How does this work?
