06/14/2016 – Ephemeris – Tomorrow is the earliest sunrise of the year

June 14, 2016

Ephemeris for Flag Day, Tuesday, June 14th.  Today the Sun will be up for 15 hours and 33 minutes, setting at 9:30, and it will rise tomorrow at 5:56.  The Moon, 2 days past first quarter, will set at 3:22 tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow morning’s sunrise is the earliest sunrise of the year.  Sunrises of the next few days will stay within the same minute.  The bottoming out of the earliest sunrise is a slow affair, but the advance of the sunrise times will accelerate in the coming weeks.  We are still nearly two weeks from the latest sunset on the 26th.  That means that the summer solstice, the first day of summer is near, on the 20th.  The reason for the uneven sunrise and sunset peaks is due to a combination of the Earth’s axial tilt and the Earth’s elliptical orbit which is too complicated to explain here.   These times of sunrise and sunset are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area.  I have a link for other locations and times on bobmoler.wordpress.com.

Times are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area of Michigan. They may be different for your location.
