You have to go back to the 16th century to find a shorter day than today. For those of you that don’t own a Delorean that is impossible.   Today is the first day of Winter, arriving a little after 6 pm and is always the shortest amount of sunlight.  Due to last nights lunar esclipse, which happened on the Winter solstice we really get robbed with daylight. The last time the day was any shorter happened in the 16th century.  Get your flux capacitors fired up!
