Do not forget to look up to the sky this weekend. Winter solstice lies just before Christmas this year. You can see some holiday lights in the sky as well.

Winter solstice in the northern hemisphere occurs on Friday, December 21, 2018. It is when the sun rises in its southernmost position. Winter solstice is the shortest day of the year and marks the beginning of the winter. It is exactly the opposite of the southern hemisphere.

The upcoming full moon is called The Cold Moon and will be visible during the longest night of the year. But the two events are not perfect. The winter solstice falls one day earlier on December 21

st and the peak month will occur on December 22nd. But for the typical person, it will be full for several days.

Do not miss this opportunity to see the full moon and Urse’s meteor shower. The best time to see the ruins should be on December 22nd. The full moon can make the meteors a little more difficult to see.

The American Meteor Association says that the ages should be visible in the middle of the northern hemisphere. At the top there would be about eleven sporadic meteors per hour just before dawn seen in the countryside. The evening rate would be close to two per hour.

The summer solstice of the Northern Hemisphere occurs on June 20, 21 or 22 when the sun reaches its northernmost point, directly above the head of the Kräftakretsen (23 degrees 27 minutes north latitude). Summer solstice is the longest day of the year and marks the beginning of summer.

A solstice differs from an equinox, twice a year when the sun is directly above the earth’s equator and day and night are as long. Equinoxes marks the beginning of spring (March) and falls (September).

Solstice loosely translated in Latin is “sun standing still”. For several days before and after each solstice, the sun seems to stand still in the sky, meaning that its feasts do not seem to change from day to day.

Historically, the sun stick has been celebrated by many cultures around the world. Thousands of people annually celebrate the summer solstice at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England.

At the sunrise of Stonehenge on the longest day of the year, the sun rises behind one of the headstones and creates an illusion that the sun balances on the stone.

Stonehenge was closed for 16 years after rioting broke out between police and revelers for several years at solstice gatherings. The site was opened to the public about solar arts in 2000.
