A TED Talk. It isn’t the solstice video I was intending to put up, but I liked it better.
Yes it’s a solstice day!
The December solstice is here. The solstice occurs in a few hours at 23:03 UTC. The calendar day would be 21 or 22 December depending on your location.
For me, it is the shortest day of the year and after a short pause the day’s light will slowly lengthen. The road to spring is long and as a well known old-time weather man around here used to say: “As the days grow longer the cold grows stronger”.
My favorite site for solstice information can be found at timeanddate.com.
