This is the day according to the USNO charts the afternoon sunset starts becoming later in Philadelphia to the nearest minute!  In reality the afternoon sunset bottom must be close to December 8th.  Now that we had the earliest sunset holiday out of the way (Thanksgiving) its on to some later in the afternoon brightness for Christmas and New Years!

Lol one of my least favorite days

I think we should have Arctic Circle-like conditions here for the winter months. It feels like it anyway going to and coming from work in dark or near darkness.

Tomorrow, the sunset will match the sunset on November 7th! No more earlier sunrises too and from this point til late June we gain afternoon daylight!

Good. Next benchmark will be sun angle eating snows. I'm not sure if there is a magic "number" that sends snow weenies running for the hills.
