the above link is very useful, as if u just change the country and the city, you can get to any place in the world to find their sunrise and sunset times.

i am interested in sunrise times, and have noticed that at the winter solstice, the sunset times are not the latest times when sun rise. in london, it can be as late as 5jan, when the sun rise at the latest time 8.05am. 

added. another website i found had this interesting FAQ which makes me laugh.

(It actually gets even more complicated than that in real life, because depending on the time zone and the actual longitude, it’s possible to have a day where the sun rises very early in the morning, then sets very late at night, and then rises again almost straight away but before midnight – so you have a day with two sunrises. Which is another reason why the software simply gives up at that point.)


and it has a nice way of depicting the sunrise and sunset
