Winter Solstice 2022 Is Here! Know More
New Delhi: The Winter Solstice will be marked in India this year on Thursday, December 22. The Winter Solstice, also known as the Hibernal Solstice, is the shortest day or longest night of the year. People have been commemorating the day for decades. During the winter, the days are usually shorter and the nights are longer. After the Winter Solstice, the days begin to lengthen again. Some say it represents the rebirth of the sun. The Winter Solstice is caused by one of the Earth’s poles migrating away from and tilting away from the Sun.
It’s going to be a long night.
In the Northern Hemisphere, that is. Tonight is the #WinterSolstice, which occurs when either of Earth's poles reaches its maximum tilt away from the Sun. This happens twice yearly, once in each hemisphere. Learn more: https://t.co/ajZ6kJlVXw pic.twitter.com/je6JDLHe8F
