My husband noticed it this evening. Our posted sunset time for the Toronto area was 4:40pm... the other day it was very dark around 4 - 4:30pm but
this evening it was still very bright outside. I joked that the Earth's rotation must be slowing down... he didn't find it funny
Interestingly, our noted sunrise time was supposed to be 7:40 am, but I was having my morning coffee at 7 and there was the sun visible above the
houses in my neighborhood.
Sunrise and Sunset times
Now, I work nights on a road crew doing pavement markings in the summer and I've seen the sun rise, I've seen the light before the dawn, and I've
seen just as many sunsets ...
Now is this not an odd occurrence, or is there some atmospheric light refraction making it seem like sunset is later and sunrise is earlier? Please
don't tell me it's the snow...
Has anyone else noticed such a thing?
