The winter solstice occurs on the shortest day and longest night of the year, when the sun’s daily maximum elevation in the sky is the lowest. In the Northern Hemisphere this is the Southern solstice, the time at which the Sun is at its southernmost point in the sky, which usually occurs on December 21 to 22 each year.
Winter Solstice will occur on December 21, at about 11:28 am EST in the Northeast Region.
It’s a good day to go paddling.
