Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I was just looking out my window and thought it looks rather light compared to previous days. I know the winter solstice is passed but it shouldn't be this light. I live in Inverness and after a quick check to see what time our sunset was supposed to be tonight.... It was apparently 3.36pm, but it's currently 4.13pm and it's just starting to get dark now. Has any1 else noticed this strange phenomenon or have I had too many Christmas spirits?

It's morning on my corner of the planet and I'm noticing a strange "glow." Everything looks like it's under a black light, all the whites are glowing blue.. Pretty weird, but I've seen it before. Tends to happen when it's overcast...

So that's my two cents, perhaps you're seeing the same thing... Welcome to ATS!

Kinda funny but i stepped outside last night into an extremely dense fog. ( not highly unusual) But then i heard sirens close by and a firetruck with lights blazing headed down my street!!

It was Santa Clause!! The fire department does it every year. We have become a bit of a paranoid society.

I think it's probably the case that I'm getting the opposite. It's been a clear day after a few weeks of heavy cloud and rain so it probably just seems like the sky is lighter.

When the Sun first disappears below the horizon (i.e. Sunset), it does not instantly change from light to dark. It's called twilight.(No. not the movie).



Also, the moisture in the air = the more light that gets reflected back down to you.

Hi Lepus, you might want to have a look at a program called Stellarium. Its free to download. I checked Inverness at the time you stated and, although the sun had already set, there was still quite a lot of ambient light.

Merry Christmas.

All clear on the south eastern front. Although I did notice an unusual lull in air traffic out of the private airport where I live around the 20th. Haha I think the nuts all took off to the bunkers.

Welcome!

I noticed this about 2 weeks ago or so, here in Colorado. It seemed to me that we hit our shortest days of the year almost 2 weeks before the solstice. Here, it seems that we have maybe 30 min more daylight than we would normally, maybe more, as color seems to be in the western sky for even longer than that. I was JUST talking with my husband about this, and mentioned it again when it seemed to be getting darker way too early about 2 weeks before the solstice.

Also, to us it seems as if time is moving too quickly, like the days are flying by, but whenever I look at a clock, I'm about an hour off. This has been consistent for the past month or so, it seems. Isn't that weird? I have a pretty good sense of time and it's always wrong now, by one hour. Yet, looking back at the year or even couple of weeks, everything seems to be flying by.

In the UK the moon was pretty much full (waxing). Full moon equals quite light. I live in the sticks and can wander around outside by the light of a full moon.

Regards
