From the LA Post Examiner:
Today marks the Northern Hemisphere’s Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year. It doesn’t officially begin until 6:03 p.m. Easter Time, 3:03 here on the West Coast. Sunrise was at 6:48 a.m. this morning and sunset takes place at 4:47 p.m.
From now until June 21, 2015, the days will start to get longer; sunrises will be earlier and sunsets will get later, until the Northern Hemisphere is pointed at its closest distance to the sun for the Summer Solstice — June 21, 2015.
Maybe it’s reversing seconds at a time, but I can’t wait to get more sunlight!
