Gaining Daylight

We talked about the full moon the "Snow Moon" that will be lighting the night sky tonight, along with a partial eclipse...but there are some other cool things going on this month.

First, since the winter solstice at the end of December we've gained one hour and twenty-one minutes of daylight. And through the end of the month we will gain another 50 minutes! Right now we are gaining 2-3 minutes each day. The sun sets tonight at 5:23PM and will rise tomorrow morning at 6:57AM.

In about four weeks, we will switch to daylight time, 'springing' forward one hour on March 12th. Even though it's still February, we get to enjoy a spring-like feel with highs in the 40's through the start of next week!
