    A bit more than a second a day.  On that basis we'd only get about 3 minutes per day extra daylight by mid summer.

  • The earliest sunset was on December 12, so the evenings have been getting lighter for over a week! The latest sunrise is December 30th.

  • Winter solstice today

    Good the days are getting lighter, spotted some daffs today up above the ground

    See original post

     Meant to say, it's about a minute or two.

    It gets more as the weeks go.

    Well there's an optimist.image

    Yes it is in a way reassuring. It will take its time but once we are well into January you do begin to see the improvements.
