winter solstice

winter solstice


The Tuesday of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere. The painstaking research groups in the Antarctic, but this is the winter solstice, and oh, they are happy! It is fleeting, so get ready: the northern hemisphere summer solstice will come and go in the 01:16 Eastern Daylight Saving Time on Tuesday. From the perspective of the sun, marked the June solstice, when the northern "end" of the Earth's tilted axis reaches a maximum nodded in the direction of the Sun.

Perspective of the earth, the summer solstice, the highest position of the sun reaches the sky, so North Hemispherians the longest day of the year. In 13:17, the sun will be in effect said "enough", and slowly south, north and south in winter to summer.

Before the advent of Christianity in Northern Europe, the cultures celebrated the arrival of the June solstice because it was seen as one of the few times in the year when magic is strongest. These days, the June solstice is celebrated as the beginning of the summer, although tourist destinations like the Cape Cod Massachusett, Memorial Day often marks the beginning of the "Summer" in tourism.
