Northern sunset times during summer/winter

Jump to last reply

Can someone tell me how this works.

Ok, I know during the summer, the farther north you are, the later the sunset. I remember once in Canada, it stayed lighted till around 10:00pm, compared to here in Hawaii when it may set around 7:30pm in the summer.

I never thought of this, but I always figured that during the winter, though days are shorter all over the place, the northern areas would still have overall longer days than here, but I notice in Oregon, the sun sets around 4:50. Here in Hawaii, it doesn't set till after 6:00pm.

Any meterologists out there?
