Winter Solstice – The Shortest day of the Year

Uploaded by: Ralfo

Thursday December 22, 2011

Yonkers, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Every Year on the Winter Solstice for many years now I have taken the Sunrise. It is always in the same spot behind that Evergreen Tree. This year there are some clouds but you can still see the Sun Blazing through. Today is the shortage amount daylight. The Good News! We will start picking up daylight from now on! Happy Holidays, Make it The Best Ever! P.S. In the Northern Hemisphere the Winter Solstice starts: Dec. 22, 12:30 A.M. EDT (05:30 UT*), Sun enters sign of Capricorn; winter begins.

Congratts on the AC sunrise. We didn't have one this morning. One of the rare times I get out early and it was smothered in a big cloud bank. 10 from SW Iowa
