Final winter solstice of the decade happens tonight

Posted: Saturday, December 21, 2019. 10:00 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: A special global phenomenon will happen for the last time this decade at 11:19 p.m., the winter solstice.

Solstices and seasonal changes are caused by the tilt of Earth’s axis, which causes the hemispheres to take turns facing the sun while the planet makes its journey around its orbit.

The winter solstice, also known as the shortest day of the year, occurs when the Earth’s North Pole is tilted furthest from the Sun. At that point, the summer solstice for the South Pole will begin, as the sun will be at its closest possible point.

After tonight’s winter solstice, the length of daytime in the north will slowly increase. This will last up until June 2020, when the Summer Solstice begins.
