Even as much as 10-20 minutes throughout the year?

 

I feel like night falls at 6:35 every night no matter summer or winter. I'm in Pattaya.

 

In the US you'd have sundown at 4:30pm and then 8:30pm in the winter.

Of course, that would depend on the latitude in which you are located. If you are in Anchorage, it's completely different. nThailand is nearly on the equator, so the spread time is much less.

Just past summer solstice. We are still in the N. Hemisphere, just.

 

Pattaya has nearly 13 hours from sunrise to sunset. Sunset at 6:45pm today.

 

Just before Christmas daylight will have shortened to 11h 20m with sundown just before 6pm.

We move the start of Hash House Harriers earlier by 1/2 half hour each year and then back to compensate for sunset.

 

12 degrees north here.

All a case of how close you are to the equator.

Closer you are, the changes in tilt of the earth over the year, which determines how long you are at any given latitude exposed to the sun, has less visible effect

 

Live in Singapore which is almost bang smack on the equator and the change in length of the day is imperceptible.

 

To @Hal65 even in the US the length of the day varies greatly, between southern Florida and the Northern Plain States, without even getting to Northern Alaska where it's pretty much dark in the winter

You're a Harrier. Good for you. I stopped when my knee became a big problem back in 2000. I miss the group.

I have a feeling the only thing NC1701a harries is females

In the UK it varies from a sunset before 4 in the afternoon in the winter to a sunset close to 10 at night in the summer.

Of course there are parts of the world where the sun never sets for 6 months of the year but paid for in the other 6 months.
