Good News/ Bad News

The Analemma

I have noticed that it is getting darker a little later now than it did 3 weeks ago. Good news. So I checked to see how much more daylight we’re getting now versus the winter solstice. It’s almost 18 minutes more. Hooray.

Bad news: we’re only adding about 1.5 minutes per day of additional daylight in the month of January. (Good news; by the end of January, we’re adding 2.5 minutes of daylight per day.) It’s a long way ‘til Spring.
