The last day of June proves the days are getting longer, even if only by a smidgen

It’s over a week since the shortest day of the year and Saturday is the 1st of July, so for those of you looking for a tiny silver lining this might be it…even if small!

Sunset times for the last day of June (regions around these main centres are generally similar)

  • Auckland – 5:14pm – 2 minutes longer (available sunlight) than the shortest day of the year on June 21st
  • Wellington – 5:01pm – Over 2 minutes longer than the shortest day
  • Christchurch – 5:02pm – 2.5 minutes longer than the shortest day
  • Dunedin – 5:02pm – Nearly 3 minutes longer than the shortest day.

Of course with all the cloud and rain clouds about this weekend it may be hard to even notice this tiny change, but still, some may find it psychologically helps them out as we enter the coldest part of the year and the depths of winter. 

Have a great weekend!
