Solstice

Last night, at 23:38, was the exact time of the winter solstice for us folks in the northern hemisphere. Summer solstice for you lucky people down there in the southern part.

It says so in the Astronomy picture of the day website, so it must be true.

It never really occurred to me that the solstice would occur at an exact time, but I suppose it makes sense if you think about it.

Actually if you look in Wikipedia, they have more information on it that you would ever actually want to read, unless you are either really keen or bored.
