Sunsets get later from now until June 28
FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
Cheer up! Your days will soon brighten – at least in the afternoon. Last night witnessed the earliest sunset of the year, at 4:43 p.m. EST in Baltimore. From today, our afternoons will begin to get longer until the latest sunset, at 8:37 p.m. EDT, June 28.
We’re not fully over the hump. Sunrises will continue to get later until Jan. 4. And total daylight hours will continue to dwindle until the advance of dusk outpaces that of the dawn, on Dec. 21 - the winter solstice.
