Winter Solstice Happening Saturday 21 Dec 13

Winter officially arrives in the Northern Hemisphere this (SAT) morning. The Winter Solstice occurs at 11:11am our time. At that moment the Sun will be directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, as far south as it ever gets. After the Solstice sunsets will start arriving later, making the days get longer and the nights get shorter as we head towards Spring.
