This month we will see a big change come to New York and many people are dreading it already.

This month we will see the last sunset after 8 pm take place on August 25th. That day the sun will set at 8:02 pm. On the 26th it will set at 8:00 pm and then we will not see a sunset after 8:00 pm until 2024.

The sun will set at 7:58 pm on August 27th and will set earlier and earlier until December 21st, which is the Winter solstice and the day with the least amount of sunlight


The winter solstice is the day that the Earth's axis is tilted the farthest away from the sun.  This year the winter solstice will take place on Thursday, December 21st at 10:27 pm.  On that day most places in New York will get around 9 hours and 15 minutes of daylight.

So when will we see a sunset after 8 pm? It will be a while. According to the website, the next time we will have a sunset after 8 pm in New York will be on April 18th at 8:02 pm.
