according to Walsh. Light bends as it travels through layers of air with different densities, and as a result the sun is normally a little bit below the horizon when we can first see it. But an unusual stratification of the air over Greenland could have led to a stronger bending of the sun's rays, making the sun appear to arrive earlier than usuall.

EDIT - defcon5 even posted an explanation lols.edit on 3-6-2011 by BIGPoJo because: more info
I'm curious of you and defcons credentials. Surely you both are PHD's in astronomy, as well as doctorates in geology and paleontology? No? Then enough from you people who lack the common sense to bake a cake or do your laundry without shrinking it pretending to be something your not. Personally I think your part of a disinfo campaign.
I have also noticed this myself and just yesterday talked to a lady I work with which I don't ever talk to about anything outside of the job who also, without me mentioning anything, described exactly what this thread is discussing. She is over fifty and lives in the house she grew up in here in kansas city. She is a lifelong gardner and mentioned to me she noticed the sun setting off course in comparison to all her years on this earth. Without her knowing anything about me or my "beliefs" of this world, and without leading her in anyway she said exactly what I expected, "Its setting more NW than I've ever seen it". She even had points of reference, trees due west that form a "V" shape towards horizon.
