It's 9:00 PM. We're 300 miles from Chicago and wearing sunglasses.

It's 9:00 PM CDT in Minnesota and the sun is 1 degree above the horizon, you may know this as daytime. If I were in Louisiana right now the sun would be 11 degrees below the horizon and the sunset would come 45 minutes earlier. And that's why the Twilight Map is the map of the week.

I cut my grass at 9:15 last night, it was sunny. The cold dark winters of the north have transformed into the best riding weather or the year. It's 74 Fahrenheit (23 Celsius) and the sun will dip below the trees at 8:30, keeping us in twilight until 10:30.

In Copenhagen the sun sets at 9:57. The darkness doesn't come for another hour and a half!
