The shortest day of the year
Today was the shortest day of the year, winter solstice. The sun rose at about 11.15 and will set at around 15.30. It was a beautiful day, with intermittent snowfall and some blue skies could even be seen during the brightest time of the day. The weather forecast predicts a White Christmas and today was one of these perfect days to get into a Christmas mood.
December 21 is the northern winter solstice. Here in Selfoss sunrise was at 11:14 and sunset at 15:29 and the sun is just 2.7° over the horizon at midday.
