Solstice ?

6 posts in this topic

I was born on the summer solstice and here in southern WI the sun sets officially at 8:41 now but it is light until about 9:15. When does the sun sets officially and when it is light until for those further up north?

Last night it was still somewhat dusk at 10:00pm, not totally dark yet. This morning when my alarm went off at 4:40 it was already poking daylight.

Officially, sunrise is at 5:31 and sunset at 9:15 today. I'm located in central Minnesota about 50 miles NW of St. Cloud or about 125 miles NW of Mnpls/St. Paul metro.

This is a neat topic! Oficiacally is 9:03 at Twin Cities but still light till 9:30ish. I never noticed the light change the further north I went because I never really focussed on what time of day it was. Thats until I visited my brother in

Grest Falls Montana I noticed the differance. It was light out till 11:00 pm at around this time of year. Boy with time zone change and being further north that was a mind blower.

When we used to pull plugs all night long in northern part of mn we would still see light at 11:30 in the west and you would start to see light in the east around 2:30 or 3:00. Make for a very short night in terms of total darkness.

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.      You guys would make me walk out first, wouldn't ya?      O this stupid merge junk....$#@! son of a 
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
