The days are getting longer
January 8, 2013
The days are noticeably longer than just two weeks ago. And this observation got me to thinking, “How much longer?” According to TimeandDate.com today is 1 min and 15 secs longer than yesterday and the rate of increase is increasing. I love that trend! The maximum rate of increase will be 2 min 57 secs between March 13 and March 23, according to TimeandDate.com. The sun of course is getting higher in the sky. How much? Almost six degrees higher by the end of the month.
The sunset this afternoon isn’t very colorful. So, here’s a photo I took a few years ago when we had a very dramatic evening sky.
