As we head further into spring toward summer, the early nightfall has gotten depressing. Thankfully, the District can rejoice as its beautiful sunsets begin to occur later and later!
According to Date & Time, Monday, May 1st will be the first 8 p.m. sunset of the year in Washington, D.C. Meaning that from May 1st onward, sunset will be after 8 p.m.
Since Daylight Saving Time began on Sunday, March 12, 2023, it’s brought D.C. more light and longer days, making the one-hour loss of sleep worth it.
The sun won’t set before 8:00 p.m. again until Aug. 18, 2023.
Until then, we can appreciate the longer periods of sun in our days!
