Baby, it’s hot outside, but the days are getting shorter, a minute per day. On August 9 the sun goes down at 7:46 p.m. in California’s most populated areas, and the length our daylight lasting roughly 13 hours and 30 minutes on this day. As each days passes, the sun sets a minute earlier than the day before, till we reach our shortest day of the year in December. At Winter Solstice around December 21 the sun sets at approx. 4:45 p.m. and there are just under 12 hours of daylight.
Why does this matter?
