If you’re eagerly awaiting this weekend’s winter solstice because it’s the shortest day of the year—and thus every day after that will be a teensy bit longer—I have some bad news: while the total day length will get longer, sunrise will actually keep getting later for a while, meaning we’ll have even darker mornings.
Early risers might already be familiar with this phenomenon, but it caught me by surprise last year when I got into the habit of waking up early to go for a run. Sunset got later and later every day, but so did sunrise. Sunrise was 7: 39 in my location on the solstice, and it was late January before I ever saw a sunrise at 7: 38.
This all depends on your location, so if you’re itching for some morning sun, go ahead and look up sunrise and sunset times here.
Let’s take a look at New York City. Its earliest sunset (darkest evening) was around December 6, so evenings are already getting a bit sunnier. On the solstice, the sun will rise at 7: 16 a.m., and it will set at 4: 31 p.m.
But then the sunrise also continues to get later, peaking at 7: 20 in early January. New Yorkers won’t see a 7: 15 sunrise until January 20th. Then they can start celebrating the lightening mornings, looking forward to that 7 a.m. sunrise in early February and, ultimately, a 5: 24 a.m. sunrise in mid-June.
Now let’s take a more southerly example. In San Diego, the earliest sunset (darkest evening) happened way back around Thanksgiving. Sunsets have been getting later, and sunrise as well. On the solstice, people in San Diego will see a 6: 45 a.m. sunrise and a 4: 45 p.m. sunset. It won’t be until January 30 that they’ll see a sunrise any earlier than that. Although if you are in San Diego, you’re already getting a good half-hour more morning sun than New Yorkers—so I hope you’re taking advantage. Enjoy that morning run
