'Tis the week to explain the Solstice!

A little something from Santa: This year, the Winter Solstice will occur at 10:30 pm MST on Wednesday, December 21. CLICK HERE to see an animation courtesy of the Santa Barbara City College Dept. of Physics and Engineering. I project the animation onto a big screen and use it to explain the solstice (and its relationship to the length of daylight). CLICK HERE for more information about the solstice. CLICK HERE to see another animation (courtesy of Prentice Hall). CLICK HERE to read more about the image to the right. And finally, CLICK HERE to get sunrise and sunset times for your city. Merry Christmas!
