Let there be light

As the December solstice approaches, when the Northern Hemisphere will start to have longer daylight hours again, the earliest sunset? Has already happened. The explanation of why is complicated, so last year Phil Plait, science writer who does the column Bad Astronomy, did the explaining.

I'm looking forward to more evening light. Of course it'll be cold for a while, but I'll deal.
