This year, that's precisely 16:28 UTC, or 11:28 a.m. (E.T.).

The Southern Hemisphere, meanwhile, is celebrating the summer solstice, or the longest day of the year, on December 21. During the local noon, you will see your shadow to be the longest of the year.

The summer solstice will be giving those who live in the Southern Hemisphere more than 12 hours of daylight.

Even amidst all the depressing news we are surrounded by, the winter solstice gives us a flawless reason to celebrate: whatever is happening in the political world, nature keeps going on her course. However our LGBTQ community celebrates the shortest day & longest night, whether alone or with family & friends in the northern hemisphere just remember that the southern hemisphere is basking in sunshine & enjoying the first day of summer.

Every year on December 21, a shaft of sunlight actress through the window box above the entrance to the 5,000 year old neolithic tomb and illuminates the entire passage for 17 minutes.

Sunrise is at 7:23 a.m. and sunset is at 4:49 p.m. From that point on, periods of daylight get longer. North of the Arctic Circle - at 66.5 degrees north latitude - the sun never rises, and darkness prevails as the Earth rotates on its axis.

Sunset in the United States of America varies due to the vast geographical size of the country, which has four standard time zones.

Google is welcoming the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere with a new Doodle.

The exact timing of the coldest stretch of the year depends on several factors, including how close you live to water, prevailing wind direction and the amount of snow cover (snow is great at reflecting the sun's heat straight back into space).
