Just a very quick post as today marks the earliest sunset for the year. I remember hearing about this last month, and made a mental note to post something on it today.
We still have 10 days until the solstice, and sunrise will occur later. In fact, sunrise will continue to be increasingly late for the next month or so, even though the total number of daylight hours will slowly increase.
As it is, I will be arriving home in total darkness! (It is dark outside as I write this; in six months the sun will be up at this time)
