Bottoming Out!

November 30, 2014

Sunset 4:51 PM. San Francisco

Tonight is the earliest that the sun will set this year (for this latitude, at least). It will continue to set at 4:51 PM for the next 12 days before it once again opens up the day and begins to set later. All of this before the Winter Solstice. How can this be, you may ask. Ah, well :) The daylight continues to shrink because the sun is still rising later each day- eventually culminating on the shortest day a few weeks from now.

I love this graceful and uneven approach to the Solstice and hope you enjoy this little factoid as much as I do.
