Click to ENLARGE. The ‘Night Sky’ feature in action.
I have been a HUGE fan of ‘timeanddate‘ for years — as long as I can remember. I rely on them extensively. They, like Wikipedia, is one of my key ‘goto’ resources. I endorse them whenever I can because they do such a great job.
Yesterday, when I was looking for sunrise/sunset times for the 2020 Summer Solstice I happen to see this NEW ‘Night Sky’ feature — supposedly still in beta. I gave it a quick spin. I didn’t have much time. Ditto again, just now. Again gave it a very quick spin. Looks GREAT. I know that they will NOT disappoint. A very competent & thorough outfit. I am thrilled. I will happily go to them for my night sky. I am excited. Thank YOU, ‘timeanddate’. Keep up the good work.

Sunrise & sunset times are NOT in (& never are) in lock-step. So, we don’t get the earliest sunrise coupled with the latest sunset on the Summer Solstice.
This year the earliest sunrises, at 5:05am, are happening right now — and will be done on June 18. Sunsets, however, continue to be later. Which is how we still managed to get the longest day on the Solstice. But, we are now talking in SECONDS.
