Shortest Day of the Year Happens Tomorrow

You’re about to make it through the darkest days of the year; Astronomical Winter is coming. The Winter Solstice happens tomorrow, December 21st, at precisely 1:48 pm. This is when the northern hemisphere will be tilted furthest from the Sun, and you will experience the shortest day of sunlight. For those who enjoy the longer days from this moment on, days begin to get longer and the nights shorter as daylight hours begin to increase by milliseconds.
