One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

The sun was rising over the Anacostia this morning when I got to work, and the near full moon was low in the western sky
This morning the sun rose at 6:48. This is compared to 5:42 in early-mid June. We're losing just about two and a half minutes of daylight each day now; that's about as bad as it gets. The losses slow gradually up to the Solstice in December. Sunrise there will be 7:27 Eastern Standard Time and that's as late as it gets.
