Sunset on Summer


Location: Lake St, near 45th Ave.

Today, the last day of summer, the sun sets at exactly 270 degrees (directly West). Lake Street also goes directly west setting up a unique sunset in Longfellow. The point of sunset will continue in a southern direction until the first day of winter. We will not see another sunset on Lake street again until last day of winter. (Only happens twice a year!)

The furthest south the sunset occurs is 237(WSW) degrees on Winter Solstice. Furthest north the sunset occurs is 305(NW) degrees on the Summer Solstice.
