Sunset on the shortest day of the year.

Celebrations to mark winter solstice

Sunday, 21 December 2008

Today is the shortest day of the year and celebrations are taking place to mark the winter solstice.

This year’s solstice also marks the start of the United Nations International Year of Astronomy…

Ah, science.

Over the years we’ve gone to a variety of outside events to mark the winter solstice. Not this year, it’s way too cold.
