    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Have you noticed in recent days that the sun is out later than normal? You’re not crazy – this has an explanation: It is an astronomical phenomenon known as the summer solstice, when a day has the longest period of daylight.

    According to the weatherman, Eladio Solano, Costa Rica is somewhat affected by this situation that occurs with greater extent in other countries located at high latitudes, such as parts of Europe, Africa and Asian countries where they have up to 15 hours of light .

    According to Solano, from Thursday to Tuesday, July 15, sunset will be later, at 6:02 pm, while between November 07 and 26 it will be much earlier, at 5:11 pm for the winter solstice.

    “There are some polar areas with 24 hours of light, ie there is no moment of darkness, even when they are in the winter time, those places might only have a few hours of daylight. Overall, the sunsets, which usually occur between 5:26 pm and 5:41 pm, in January, while in February at 5:41 pm and 5:46 pm, March at 5:46 pm, with a very similar situation in April,” said Solano.

    For May, the entry of the night was between 5:48 pm and 5:54 pm, while in June between 5:54 pm and 6:01 pm; and in July between 6:01 pm to 6:02 pm and after this month, back down at about 5:59 pm in the following months.
