Longest day of the year was Monday, and here in Portland, Oregon that means it’s not full dark until about 10:30 p.m. I was in Fairbanks, Alaska one summer when it was still light at 11:30, but what we have here is still a long day, since it gets light at about 5 in the morning.
The chart shows sunrise to sunset, but of course it gets light earlier and stays light quite a while after sun sets. It feels strange to look out the window at 10 at night and think it must be about dinner time, when said dinner was consumed about four hours ago.
How long is your longest day of the year?
