I came here from the east coast 3 years ago and I'm still a little disoriented by the difference in sunset times. It's after 9:00 and not nighttime. I'll probably always be fascinated by this.

In most of Western and Northern Europe it’s like that and even later! In the Scandinavian capitals sunsets well after 10 PM!

When I went to Paris it looked like this at 11pm! I want to see the midnight sun someday!

Day vs night is related to clock time..... but in regards to day light... yes thankfully the sunsets later in the late spring summer. People tend to stay out later as the weather is more agreeable.

I was out walking/jogging/trying to run until 9:45 last night. I love it.

In the 90s, there used to be a major fireworks competition at Ontario around this time. It would always start at 10:30pm. Even up until 10:15, you could still see a sliver of light, which is why they waited until that time until it was completely dark to start the fireworks.

In Thunder Bay the sun sets a little after 10pm around the summer solstice and only gets fully dark around 11pm because it's a bit further north but also much further west and in the same time zone.

According to Time and Date you have barely any full darkness at this time of year. https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/canada/thunder-bay

Enjoy the sunshine. The peak day I think is either today or tomorrow (summer solstice). From now on in, it's getting shorter.
