Daylight, Daylength

This season is the short transition from winter into summer. Dawn lasts for about 4 hours, then the sun is low in the sky for about 8 hours, so it feels like mid-morning all day, then the sunset lasts for another 4 hours or so. The sun starts going down (with orange skies to the west) around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, and at nine o'clock at night it still looks like late dusk! It still gets dark at night for now, but by late October it should start being solid daylight for the next 4 months! The sun will just revolve around us in the sky.

For now I'm really loving the eternal dawn/dusk feeling!
