SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) — Daylight Savings Time pushed back our clocks a couple days ago on November 5th. While the extra hour of sleep was appreciated by many, the earlier sunsets are alarming. Tuesday night in Syracuse, the sun is setting at 4:49 p.m. This means the day virtually ends in the afternoon.
Syracuse is not the only city dealing with this sensation, cities around the world are also struggling to stay motivated with earlier sunset times. Down in New York City, the sun is setting at 4:45 tonight, making their day four minutes shorter than in Syracuse. The West Coast does not have it so great, either. Their sun is setting at 4:55 pacific time.
London is known for having dark and rainy seasons, and their daylight hours reflect that. Londoners should expect to be living in darkness starting at 4:24 in their time zone. Rome has until 4:57 to turn their streetlights on. Over in the Asian continent, the sun is setting at 4:40 p.m.
Out of all of the cities mentioned, none have daylight past five p-m on Tuesday. Daylight Savings Time and the approaching Winter season have had a massive effect on the entire glove.
