Pic(k) of the Week: Happy hibernal solstice

Condo night

Magenta dusk —over a blue-lit building, with green streetlamp tint— in Decatur, Georgia, USA.

The hibernal solstice —the onset of astronomical winter in the Northern Hemisphere, but of the summer solstice in the Southern Hemisphere and the onset of astronomical summer there— occurs tonight, 21 December 2019, at 11:17 pm ET (your mileage may differ). The above photo was taken 24 November 2019...but you get the picture.

Happy hibernal solstice to all...and to all a good (condo) night.
