My bad.

I'm surprised too.

I like the "pm" bias in this country, with the geographical median almost half an hour past noon - 12:21 mean zenith time at Wellington, and 12:46pm at Invercargill.

For Seattle, Washington:

December 21, 2011 (winter solstice)

Start Civil Twilight: 7:19am PST
Sunrise: 7:55am PST
Sunset: 4:20pm PST
End Civil Twilight: 4:56pm PST

Earliest sunsets (which actually fall just before the solstice) are at 4:18pm PST, with the earliest end of civil twilight being at 4:53pm PST. Latest sunrise (just after the solstice) is at 7:58am PST, with the latest start of civil twilight starting at 7:22am PST.


For Seattle, Washington:

June 21, 2011 (summer solstice)

Start Civil Twilight: 4:31am PDT
Sunrise: 5:11am PDT
Sunset: 9:11pm PDT
End Civil Twilight: 9:52pm PDT

There appears to be no sunrise earlier than this, nor no sunset later than this, nor no end civil twilight later than this. However, civil twilight starts one minute earlier (at 4:30am PDT) for a few days prior to that. Strange.

In the summer time, I can definitely remember it being fairly light for several days before and after the solstice up until 10pm. Even though civil twilight technically ends minutes earlier, the very beginning of nautical twilight seems to be light enough to make it (civil twilight) appear to linger around for a few extra minutes.

In the winter, it does definitely get dark well before 5 around here, and if it's overcast (which it is quite a bit that time of year!), we are cheated out of civil twilight.

I actually like the seasonal changes in daylight hours. It's kind of neat. Just as with the seasonal changes in temperature, when I start to get tired of one season, it changes. From summer the days get shorter and cooler, only to get longer and warmer again after winter. I've always liked seasonal change, sunrise/sunset changes (as well as the path of the sun across the sky, it's angle, etc.) included.

I like the short days of winter, and the long days of summer, it seems alien to me that some places have equal sunshine all year.


For Leeds, UK today:

Sunrise: 7:34 AM
Sunset: 4:07 PM
Civil twilight begins: 6:55 AM
Civil twilight ends: 4:47 PM
Length of day: 8hrs 23m 49s


For the longest and shortest days of the year:

21 December 2011

Sunrise: 8:22 AM
Sunset: 3:46 PM
Length of day: 7hrs 24m 39s


21 June 2012
Sunrise: 4:35 AM
Sunset: 9:41 PM
Length of day: 17hrs 06m 06s

Here in summer, at least some form of twilight exists all night, and you can notice it too as the sky has a blue hint to it (compared to the pitch black sky of winter)

I'm also someone who doesn't understand why weather affects people's mood so much. If I'm having a good day, I could give a crap whether it's cloudy, sunny, hot, cold, etc. I don't understand how someone could be having a fairly decent day but be in a bad mood only because it's cold or it's cloudy outside. Weather really isn't that important.

Anyway,


Sunrise: 6:46 AM
Sunset: 5:36 PM
