FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — As we approach the end of July, the days are getting shorter.
Honestly, ever since Summer Solstice in June, we’ve been losing sunlight each day.
On June 20, Fort Wayne had 15 hours and 8 minutes of sunlight.
If you compare that to Aug. 1, the city will only get 14 hours and 19 minutes of sunlight.
The month will begin with sunrise at 6:36 a.m. and sunset of 8:56 p.m.
The loss of daylight will accelerate throughout the month of August.
One can expect an average loss of 2 minutes per day.
By the end of August, the sunrise will be at 7:06 a.m. and sunset will be at 8:13 p.m.
That will only be 13 hours and 7 minutes of daylight by August 31.
Believe it or not, we will continue to lose daylight until winter solstice on Dec. 21.
It will be the shortest day with 9 hours and 13 minutes of sunlight.
That’s a loss of 5 hours of daylight from the beginning of August to winter solstice!
