The Winter Solstice

Here we are, my final post of the year 2016 is coming to an end and 2017 is just days away. And so before we though out our calendars and start a new year I would like to take the time to appreciate a special event that takes place this time of year the winter solstice.

The winter solstice not only marks the beginning of winter, but also the shortest day of the year. And as such, it has been a day of celebration throughout history and across the globe.

And so I would like share with you the sun’s short journey across the sky of the winter solstice.
