I have been watching the daylight time for awhile now. It has steadily gone up by almost 2 minutes a day now. From what my app says on my phone right now we are getting 14 hours and 31 minutes of daylight. I want to document when this starts to go back. I find it interesting for some reason. The app I use for sun times on my phone is called Weather Underground. It's a real cool app for weather. ;D


June 22nd the days will start getting shorter.

According to this chart:

.. it shows the earliest sunrise date and latest sunset date.
I suppose June 22nd is between those dates so it should be about correct although it appears June 24th is the longest day?
Perhaps June 25th they start getting shorter.



That's not far off. I am surprised we have 14 hours of daylight. I think things are shifting though.

Nice chart, thanks for that. I hate seeing the time start to slip. Not sure why I watch suntimes, lol.
