    Here in Morocco it tends to go dark at about 6.45pm and gets light about 7.15 am (both approx)

    From memory I think that is more daylight than UK this time of year - I think its down to curvature of the earth but just wondering how much difference there is.

    Would anyone like to put the times of their locations so we can see how much it is?

    btw Morocco is on the same time as UK ( 1 hour behind Spain etc)
