It may be the shortest amount of sunlight today, but from this point forward it will mean more light! Happy Winter Solstice!#NotesFromOurNaturalists
WINTER SOLSTICE
The solstice is an astronomical event that happens twice each year, once in summer and once in winter, when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the North or South Pole. During each solstice the tilt of the axis of the Earth (relative to the Sun) is the maximum.

During the winter solstice the northern hemisphere is tilted furthest away from the sun, which reaches its lowest position in the sky and results in the shortest period of daylight.

Depending on the shift of the calendar, the winter solstice occurs sometime between December 20 and 21. In 2022, the winter solstice occurs on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 at approximately 4:48 pm EST. The length of day (in New Jersey) will be 9 hours, 18 minutes.

Since ancient times, the winter solstice has been marked by festivals and rituals. It marked the symbolic rebirth of the Sun as daylight hours begin to grow again.
