2020 Summer Solstice Is A Week Away, But We Are Having Our Earliest Sunrises.

2020 Summer Solstice (my least favorite day of the year) is on June 20.

We will have 15 hours & 23 minutes of daylight.

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.

Yes, sirree, the 2016 Summer Solstice is indeed on Monday, June 20, 2016.

Hence why it is the longest day of 2016.

But NOTE, however, how the sunset stays at 8:30 pm till July 1, 2016, i.e., 12 days.

The sunrise times start getting later much faster.

In 12 days we would have lost 40 seconds of daylight time.

The Summer Solstice is my LEAST favorite day of the year! For me it is when days start getting shorter — telling me that winter is on the way. It is the only real way of looking at it. SMILE.
