The sprawling farm along Annapolis Road in Gambrills stands as an oasis of rural life in the midst of suburbia. Cows graze beyond the white fence as commuters pass by; farm trucks carry organic produce to local farmers markets. Maryland Sunrise Farm is on 857 acres that served as a dairy operation for the U.S. Naval Academy as recently as the 1990s; midshipmen got their milk straight from the source. Its corn maze is a fall tradition, and residents say the farm is a reminder of Anne Arundel's agricultural past, a marker of history in a fast-growing portion of the county not far from Fort Meade.

We are still about two weeks away from the shortest day of the year, but after Friday night, the early winter sunsets will start shifting later again. The difference between sunset times from Dec. 2 through Dec. 11 is a matter of seconds, all at about 4:43 p.m. in Baltimore. About in the middle of that span is Friday's sunset, after which the darkness starts arriving slightly later each night. The days, however, continue growing shorter until the winter solstice on Dec. 21. Sunrise will continue shifting later in the morning until about Jan. 6, when it peaks at about 7:26 a.m. So, why isn't the earliest sunset and latest sunrise on the winter solstice?

Moshe Pelberg of Baltimore wonders why, for a few weeks around the summer solstice (June 21), sunset and sunrise times both get later each day. "The reverse happens for three weeks in December," he writes. "Any idea why?" Too arcane for 87 words, Moshe. You can blame daily and seasonal variations in the Earth's orbit and spin, which stretch differences between "solar" time and "clock" time. Baltimore's sunrises will creep later after Friday, the year's earliest at 5:39 a.m. Our latest sunset is 8:37 p.m. June 27.

The day's first light tinted the dark sky and chased away the full moon Sunday as worshipers picked their way across the hillside at Beachmont Christian Camp in Kingsville. Frost-covered grass crunched underfoot as families and couples bundled in ski jackets and blankets arrived, some clutching cups of coffee. Most held a copy of the Easter sunrise service program. "Over the years, it's snowed, it's rained and it's been a little colder than this, but they keep coming," said Paul Twining, the director of Beachmont Christian Ministries.
