Happy Winter Solstice 2022: Facts to know

The winter solstice of 2022 has arrived! The recent dip in temperature has become obvious for the majority of us in the northern hemisphere; frosty mornings and frigid air are the norms. The winter solstice, which declares the first day of astronomical winter, is also the day following which the Sun begins to make a joyful return.
But when exactly is the winter solstice? And how does it influence the various latitudes? Continue reading for solutions to this and other questions.

A phenomenon in astronomy is the winter solstice. Midwinter is a time of year when daytime hours are at their shortest and nighttime hours are at their longest. This should be celebrated because it occurs twice a year.

When is the winter solstice in 2022?

The winter solstice falls on December 21, 2022. Astronomical winter officially begins on this day, which will also be the solstice, which will occur at 9:47 p.m. GMT. This is distinct from meteorological winter, which consistently starts on December 1st each year.
Every year, there are two solstices: one in June and one in December.

What is the winter solstice?

The shortest day of the year occurs here in the northern hemisphere on the winter solstice, when the Sun is at its lowest point in the sky. It’s an occurrence rather than something you can see, like a meteor shower or a planet in opposition.
The interaction between Earth’s tilt and its orbit around the Sun causes the solstices (and the equinoxes).

The northern hemisphere is tilted away from the Sun at its greatest angle during the winter solstice, which causes the Sun to appear to be at its lowest point in the sky. This results in the shortest day (and longest night) of the year for those of us on Earth since the sun crosses the sky in the shortest amount of time. The days start to get longer and the nights get shorter after the winter solstice.
The seasons as we know them wouldn’t exist if the Earth weren’t tilted, yet we might have “climate zones” because the Sun would always be squarely above the equator.

Happy Winter Solstice Celebration

One of the earliest known winter celebrations is the winter solstice. It not only signifies the beginning of a new season but also the end of the long winter nights.
Amazingly little is known about these ancient standing stones, despite the fact that Stonehenge is one of the most well-known prehistoric monuments in the world. However, they have come to be associated with the solstices, and it is difficult to escape tales of crowds of people descending on the monument in the middle of winter and the middle of summer. However, they have done so for ages and with good reason.

This year, the winter solstice will be observed at sunrise on December 22 because the exact moment of the solstice is at 9:48 p.m. on December 21 (i.e., after the Sun has set). You may watch the ceremony live at English Heritage if you don’t feel like braving the chilly winter morning.
