I am sure this has been covered somewhere but I am sort of freaking out. Yesterday, when I left work it was very dark. I left work at 730 PM. Today when I left work at the same time it was very light outside. It was even light when I got home around 7:55. What is going on here? I thought the Farmers Almanac and so on was always the same.


To me, it seems that where I live must have drifted further south today. Why?

Yes, that happens around this time of year. That time of year where we grow ever closer to the Solstice.

This is weird, it seems like there was a 20 minute or so variation. I know the erf wobbles, but this seem a bit odd. Maybe 5 degrees plus if my grade school science mind it right.

I remember reading some time ago that Eskimo's in Greenland saw the sun come over the horizon 2 days early. This is very interesting I think. I have never seen a 24 hour difference like this before.

If anything was wrong with earth's orbit or axis/ tilt rest assure that it would be picked up pretty quickly worldwide.

Are you in the UK, if you are the clocks went forward an hour, maybe that would explain it.

Yeah, everything's normal. Here in the Southern Hemisphere the sun's coming up later each day, by a very noticeable amount (a good 1-2 minutes a day later over the past week). Sunsets are also happening earlier.

For us, Winter really IS coming (I hope no white-walkers as well :lol

That is obviously what I would expect here as well.

Horrible creatures that live north of the wall.

Would you like to see one?

Haha it's a reference to A Song of Ice and Fire (or the Game of Thrones TV series).

In the simplest way to describe them, they're tough-as-coffin-nails, undead zombie-like creatures, with a bad case of caffeine deficiency after a few thousand years' hibernation (really grumpy and generally wanting to kill everything).

That concept seems sort of Mandelaish to me. Ok, everybody! It's not 4 o'clock, it's 5 o'clock!

You know Phage, in real life it would be interesting to gauge the expression on your face when you said that in real time.

Possibly atmospheric conditions?

Or, Earth spun 5° off, but then we'd probably all be dead. If we weren't, we'd definitely be having major GPS and power issues at the very least!

Aside from the few minutes of additional daylight each day that we get between the spring equinox and the summer solstice (which does NOT account for a 20 to 30 minute difference in sunset from one day to the next), was it possibly cloudier on the "yesterday" that you said it was dark at 7:30?

Overcast or stormy weather could have made the light at 7:30 pm on that day appear darker than it would have been if the skies were more clear.
