The Hibernal Solstice occurred yesterday — Saturday, 22 December — at 1:08 in the morning Eastern Standard Time (EST).
So between the time the sun rises today — 7:24 AM — and when it sets — 4:51 PM — we can again enjoy a day with just a bit more daylight than the day before. And, from now until June, day by day, those daylight hours will continue to extend.
That's a reason to celebrate. Have a merry Solstice!
