Summer may not be officially over yet (still one more day!), but those long summer nights are definitely winding down…
Tonight (September 24), Manchester’s sunset will be at 7pm — and it will be the last sunset on or after 7pm until March 2022! According to Time and Date, the sun will bid farewell at 7pm on the dot, making it the last of the year. September 26 will enjoy a measly 6.55pm sunset, fittingly during the first few days of Autumn!
Of course, days won’t be quite as short as they will be after the clocks go back in October, but they will get darker much faster. The next 7pm Sunday will come when we sacrifice an hour’s kip for longer days at the end of March 2022, when we wave goodbye to daylight savings for another seven months.
Despite the shortening days, Manchester is predicted to see some temperatures over the 17-degree mark, so we can’t say we’re too mad about all things up in the sky at the moment. But hey, Autumn has officially arrived, so we can get those awesome photos among the leaves very soon. Summer ’21, we barely knew you!
