King´s Village - Waiting for Santa - Happy Winter Solstice!

The photo above shows a sunrise South of King´s Village by the sea (the Gulf of Finland, Abborrfors) at 21 Dec 07.30 UTC, just about one day before the winter solstice.

Tomorrow Dec 22nd at about 6.08 Universal Time, the sun will reach its lowest declination of the year: minus 23.5 degrees. Astronomers call this the "winter solstice"--the first day of northern winter and the longest night of the year.

As this moment approaches I am glad to wish You All a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
