Yes, today, December 12th will be the earliest sunset of 2017 — in New Hampshire.

NOT the shortest day. That is the Winter Solstice on Thursday, December 21, 2017. Still 9-days to go.

But, today is the shortest evening.

There is a difference.

Sunrise and Sunset times, leading up to the Solstice, are NOT ‘symmetrical’.

Sunrise still continues to get later and later till the 21st. Then they reverse.

Check the annotated table above.

We only have 3 minutes MORE, in total, to lose. Wow.

So, rejoice. The END of these depressing early evenings.

By Christmas evenings will be a full 5-minutes later. WOW.
