Is daylight earlier than ever before?

I m not talking about daylight savings time. I ve noticed that in the morning it starts to get light around 5:00 am. It never used to be this early in previous years at the same time (June). I also have realized that during winter these past few years,

Answers:

Its because of global warming like everything else

All of the factual answers are factual and true. I'm going to say that I've had the same feeling, that it's getting light earlier in the morning, as you say and ask. But I've just called it old-er age because I know better. For it to get light sooner the Earth would have to rotate faster, which of course it is not.

In case you haven't noticed, it is Summer.

No, everything is the same as it was a year ago at this time, and the year before.
The *earliest* the sun will rise in the northern hemisphere will be on June 21st, the summer solstice. Then, it will start rising later and later, until December 21st, where it rises the *latest* of any other time in the year.
Happens every year.

You must have moved south in winter, north in summer (if you live in the Northern Hemisphere) without realizing it.
Or your clocks are wrong.

The fact that you did not notice when it got light in earlier years does not mean that it did not happen. In terms of many human lifetimes there has been no change.

In terms of millions of years, the Earth has spun more or less quickly, but that is of no concern to your generation, or mine (at 70 years old).

The time of sunrise at any specific location and on a specific day has been the same for thousands of years.

The only difference is what you are noticing.

You can't find anything online, because it doesn't happen. Sunrises and sunsets have been happening at the same time of day for thousands of years. I checked the times for the year 2017, and back 50 years ago in 1967. The differences are less than +/- 2 minutes, with an average of zero. Even this small difference is probably due to rounding and leap-day shifts.

Nope. However it is northern hemisphere (nearly) summer, when the nights are short, and the days long.

EDIT -
Without a written record of observations, that show sunset times, and weather conditions, taken over the years, all you have are recollections.

One thing that you could do - is go to your local newspaper, or library, and lookup sunset times for a given day (they ought to be in the weather forecasting section), over several decades. Then you have a record whatever changes that may of occurred.

You could even plot the times out on a graph. Date along the horizontal, Time on the vertical. the Time should stay fairly constant over long periods of time (plus or minus a couple of minutes).

I can say that daylight is becoming longer, because we are in the summer months where the earth axis is tilted toward the sun. The opposite occurs when the earth axis is tilted away from the sun and we have shorter days in winter. This of course is speaking from the north American continent. However I can't explain why your days aren't dark at 4 in your winter, especially when you say it happens in "the same month", which you say is June.
