Today is the Summer Solstice; the longest day of the year. Today is also thirteen hours and thirty-two minutes longer than it was on December 21st, from sunrise to sunset.
Just for kicks, I've been tracking the official Whitehorse sunrise and sunset in a spreadsheet. I love using the graph function to see how the sine curve changes as the earth goes through its rotations. Nerdy, I know, but some people do weirder things.
Here are some stats that you may or may not find interesting:
Length of the day: 5 hrs., 38 min.
Length of the day: 19 hrs., 10 min.
Welcome to Whitehorse, Yukon, land of the midnight dusk!
Rachelle just said, "I want to see his sine graph." [...] "I teach science! It's *interesting*!"
So you're not alone.
Done. It's on its way.
you must have very heavy curtains.
