Shortest Day of the Year

I believe this is the first time I have every blogged twice in the same day. I have written multiple posts on the same day but never posted more than one. I would have just tacked this onto the music monday post, but I didn’t think about it until later.

Today is the shortest day of the year. Sunrise was at 7:12 this morning and sunset at 4:31.  We got 9 hours 19 minutes of daylight. In six months will be the longest day of the month. Sunrise will be at 5:49 and sunset at 9:16.  They daylight will be 15 hours and 27 minutes. I got this information from a great site called gaisma.

The Earth is weird and things like this fascinate me.
