Jim Sobek ‏@ClearlyVis: @SunPosition The Universe Today article has an error.  Melting ice flowing to equator puts more mass there, and SLOWS rotation, longer day.

RB: @ClearlyVis  The paragraph that follows that statement seems to say the same thing again.

The sun sets the furthest north today (June 21) at 55.7 degrees west of north in Toronto. Solstice 2015
