The days of darkening skies are officially behind us.
Today marks the earliest that the sun will set in Calgary all year, at a dark and early 4:29 pm.
While the total length of sunlight per day will still be getting shorter – due to later sunrises until the winter solstice on December 21 – sunsets will only get later and later from here on out.
We’ll be seeing a 4:29 pm sunset for the next week or so, but once December 17 hits we can expect an extra minute (!!!) of evening sunlight.
Not quite the 9:55 pm sunset we’re used to seeing around the end of June, but hey, it’s a start.
That daily commute home will see some sun again soon enough, we promise.
