Winter Solstice-First Day of Winter



Solstice occurs today on Wednesday December 21st at 10:44 GMT.2016.The wintry weather solstice takes place each year when the sun reaches its most southerly declination of -23.5 degrees.
In other phrases, when the north pole is tilted farthest – 23.5 degrees – faraway from the solar, turning in the fewest hours of daylight of the 12 months.Actually the solar is directly overhead of the tropic of Capricorn in the southern hemisphere all through the December solstice and is in the direction of the horizon than at every other time within the 12 months, which means shorter days and longer nights.
