Hi all, i have been using ATS for a while now but never actually signed up and made a post.
So today i noticed something quite strange and was interested in your thoughts!
Not much to it but,
I live in South Australia and the sun usually rises just as i get to work about 10 to 7Aam. (Maybe slightly off)
Well today i was woken at about 5.30 am by guess who.. the sun!
I am completely dumbfounded on why it rose so early, I'm guessing a hole hour earlier maybe more.
I verified this with co-workers and friends and they all thought it was strange to :/
What the hell would make it rise earlier?
I did a quick search and found the sun rose to days earlier in Antarctica or something as well?
My only conclusion is a celestial body getting closer????
Also yesterday was a nice sunny day, no wind, then today cant even see the sky theirs so much cloud cover, and very high winds. This could just be the weather but seems a bit odd to me.
Anyway interested on your opinions, things just keep getting weirder and weirder everyday!

How can the sun rise so much earlier for you, yet it rose just at the time as was noted in my Farmer's Almanac in my area?
Any scientist out here in ATSLand who can explain this?
