This morning marks the year's earliest sunrise. Sleepers wish it were later, but Old Sol popped above the eastern horizon at 5:39 a.m. EDT as seen from Baltimore (5:36 at Ocean City, 5:40 in Oakland). The summer solstice is early this year, at 7:59 p.m. on the 19th, and the latest sunset falls on the 27th, at 8:39 p.m. The sequence reverses in December, beginning with the earliest sunset on Dec. 7, the winter solstice on Dec. 21, and the latest sunrise Jan. 5.
