This Week's Sunrise/Sunset Times
Here's today's data:
Journey North Mystery Class
Data For: Monday, April 5, 1999
** Mystery Class #7 has experienced a one hour adjustment
to its times since last week due to the start or end of Daylight Savings Time. But
remember that this adjustment will NOT affect the photoperiod.
Discussion of Challenge Question #3
This leads us back to last week's Challenge Question which asked "Can you explain why the Daylight Savings Time change does NOT change the photoperiod."
Pennsylvania time-keepers from Mrs. Sgalippi's class explain it this way: "Dear Journey North, The reason that the photoperiods are the same after Daylight Savings Time is that the sunset changes one hour along with the sunrise time. So the photoperiods wouldn't change any more than they normally would in a week." Simmons Elementary School, Horsham, PA (MSgalipp@Hatboro-Horsham.org)
Afterall, people can't tell the sun what to do! It stays up the same amount of time no matter what time people say it is.
