The sun sets over Baltimore's Basilica of the Assumption.
(Scott Dance | The Baltimore Sun / December 6, 2012)
The shift back to Eastern Standard Time will soon mean both rush-hour commutes spent in the dark for many of us.
With the one-hour shift backward, sunset will arrive before 5 p.m. by Thursday and sunrise will push past 7 a.m. by Nov. 24.
The length of daylight meanwhile dips below the 10-hour mark somewhere in between the two, on Nov. 16.
But don't fret; it will be early in the near year, around Jan. 7, when it will start staying light past 5 p.m. again.
Here comes winter.
