The changing daylight hours thread


Recommended Posts

Entering that time of year when you can get almost twilight conditions in the north under clear skies. Drawing curtains after 10pm, mornings light at 4.30am.. best time of year.

Happens twice every year (March and September) near where I live, the sunsets between two trees. These two sunsets, 11 1/2 years apart March 2009 Last evening

You think? We get these same stories and debates every single year but nothing ever changes.   Long live GMT!

Well guess what LG, some of us here suffer from SAD so I can't tell you how much that can affect your mood and how much better daylight can make you feel. Need I remind you how much you complain about

We're getting close to when there is always a very faint glow on the northern horizon, and by around 1:30am that glow becomes noticeable even to people not looking for it. Then we get to the stage where you can report sunny weather before 5am in the morning.

This was taken at around 4:50am in June 2010.. very nice. The sun is poking from above the clouds, not the horizon.

Just a nuisance to the majority.

Disagree strongly i'm afraid regarding the best time of the year,total waste of the best part of the day when sunrise is 4:30 am!!

The earliest sunrise is today so we are back down that slippery slope until December 29th!

But the latest sunset has yet to occur, and the decline is not noticeable at all until we are well into July. I think for most working-age adults we probably won't see the sun rising until September (assuming most people in the UK work a 9-5 routine which obviously doesn't apply to everyone).

i think most people these days do not do a 9-5 job,times have changed over the last 10 to 15 years,many have very early starts as they work for small companies where the working day is not fixed by the old routines of set hours.

You can certainly tell the later sunrise now,not really light now till 5am. The speed of change is very apparent.

 No longer light until ten:( half nine now and it's dark:( Best thing about summer is the extra evening daylight.
