Im shocked at how many places have sunsets at 4:00pm!!!!!
Here, even in the winterest day of winter, sunset isnt until 6:00/7:00pm or so. Days must feel short if at 4:00 pm the night is already coming!


Here, today:

Sunrise: 05:40 AM
Sunset: 20:03 PM
Totaly daylight hours: A LOT (sorry, i wont do the math, data wont say)

The earliest sunset here is 3:38pm..

But if it's a cloudy, gloomy afternoon then street lights can be on from 2:30.

At Mid Summer sunrise is 4:26 and sunset 10:03pm. 56 degrees North... I'd like to experience the opposite, down in Chile or Argentina.

Your country has a city that has the same sunset/sunrise pattern that Scotland does. I'm sure you know about Ushuaia, TF? Both Edinburgh and Ushuaia are 56°N/55°S so the differences are very small. I believe where I live it's just barely the same as Bahía Blanca and Neuquén

Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world, so its probably night very early there, too. Never been to Ushuaia, it is soooo far away from here (its supposed to be impressive too, i wish i could go there someday).

I was surprised to know it is the southernmost. I always thought Punta Arenas, Chile was the southernmost till I discovered Ushuaia. That's one part of the world I'd love to visit. I also really want to visit Chubut and Santa Cruz provinces

Well I don't have nearly as much of a psychological need for daylight than many folks here. I prefer morning light over evening light. Do you really need to be outside for long periods of time every single day?

Obviously don't need to, but it would be nice. Some summers (not so much the last few years), I'd be outside for an hour or two (and occasionally more) in the evening most days.

I don't have as much of an interest in morning light since I don't need to wake up that early; I'd be fine with sunrises 7:30 to 8:15 if it were for only a few months if it meant I would get an extra hour of daylight later in the day. Obviously that would be inconvenient for most people.

In my case, i just moved to an apartment, 12th floor with huge windows, and i dont have curtains yet, so 5:15 the intense light awakes me every morning!!

hpefully my blackouts will be arriving soon
