I have seen nothing of much interest on my rides recently but this time of year I guess that is to be expected. The good news is that it is less than a week now to the solstice. Yay.

David, your concepts are way above my paygrade my friend! But only 5 days until I believe the amount of daylight is increasing here. YAYAYAY. I just looked it up and your solstice is on the 22nd while ours is on the 21st? I do at least grasp the concept that you are on the opposite point on the globe. (-:Steve …
Cheer up! For you the sun has already (past tense!) set at its earliest for this year… and, for me, it has already risen at its earliest.
Well, you did ask us to share the 'odd, usual, weird and eyecathing' on this thread.
Now, dare I write out the mathematical explanation? Perhaps, not; it would probably exceed the per-post character limit and, besides, I don't know how to type upside-down Greek characters.
Above my pay scale, too!Why does this chart seem to contradict itself? And the sunrise is still taking longer?
The solstice is a position in the Earth's orbit around the sun and, therefore, can be given a precise date and time — 2019-12-22 04:19 UTC.I just looked it up and your solstice is on the 22nd while ours is on the 21s. (-:
