Gooooood Morning, News Viewers and Happy Winter Solstice.
Today marks the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
It’s the precise moment at which the Northern Hemisphere is tilted farthest from the sun.
The solstice occurs at the same instant everywhere on Earth: Here in the U.S., it happens at 10:59 a.m. EST on Tuesday, Dec. 21.
At that moment, the sun’s rays will be directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, a line of latitude that circles the Earth in the Southern Hemisphere.USA Today:
Enjoy the darkness but stay safe! Mask-up!!!
