where the sun rises and sets

I have south facing windows. I purposefully bought a unit with south facing windows, because i like lots of sunlight. I have been under the assumption all my life that, in the northern hemisphere, the sun is always in the southern sky.
[Q]



I have been surprised then to discover as we get deeper into summer, the sun is actually rising in the north east and setting in the north west. Now that its summer, it would seem that north-facing windows are getting sunlight, not south. The only time my windows get sunlight now is during midday, at which time the sun is again in the south.
[Q]



From an efficiency standpoint I'm definitely the winner here -- in the hot summer months I get basically no direct sunlight, and in the winter I get non stop direct sunlight.
[Q]



"Thus, the Sun will rise north of true East and set north of true West during summer whereas during winter, the Sun will rise south of true East and set south of true West."
[Q]






Am I the only one this is news to?
