Funny thing that, its called summer .
The timing of sunrise varies throughout the year and is also affected by the viewer's longitude and latitude, altitude and time zone. Small daily changes and noticeable semi-annual changes in the timing of sunrises are driven by the axial tilt of Earth, daily rotation of the earth, the planet's movement in its annual elliptical orbit around the Sun, and the earth and moon's paired revolutions around each other.
Due to Earth's axial tilt, whenever and wherever sunrise occurs, it is always in the northeast quadrant from the March equinox to the September equinox and in the southeast quadrant from the September equinox to the March equinox. Sunrises occur due east on the March and September equinoxes for all viewers on Earth. Contents

Oh my god it's summer! The sun rising at 4:30 here in scotland and setting at 10pm. I think it's a conspiracy by the TPTB to get us out of our beds early and breathe in the chemtrails laid down at night.
Seriously though : could OP's please read a book first! Or even the internet. There is plenty of information about sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moon phases etc etc. It's all there! How many more of these shock horror .....(everything is normal) threads do we have to put up with.
Prediction : somebody will fall for the optical illusion of the moon when it is low in the sky and state "The moon is getting nearer".
