CHICOPEE, Mass (WWLP) – We are passing some milestones as our days are getting shorter and our nights are getting longer.
We have now had our last sunrise before 6 a.m. On Friday the sun rose at 5:59 a.m., but Saturday it rose at 6 a.m. and we won’t get a sunrise before 6 a.m. until April 22 of next year.
We had already passed a sunset milestone recently. August 8 was the last sunset at 8 p.m. or later, Saturday it sets at 7:48 p.m. and the next time we have an 8 o’clock sunset or later isn’t until May 10, 2020.
A sign of the times as we head toward the beginning of fall.
