Tomorrow i.e. 22 December is going to be the shortest day of the year, this day will also be the shortest day of the year. This happens because at this time the Earth is about 23.5 degrees on its axis of rotation.
December 22 is the shortest day and longest night of the year. This is called Winter Solstice. On this day the distance of the sun is very high from the earth. During this entire winter season, the Earth’s North Pole is away from the Sun while the Southern Hemisphere gets a lot of light. This happens because at this time the Earth is tilted about 23.5 degrees on its axis of rotation.
December 22 is also called Winter Solstice. In the language of science, it is also called Dakshinayan. The night lasts for about 16 hours while the day lasts only for about 8 hours. During this, it is the night at the North Pole while the Sun continues to shine at the South Pole.
The Longest Day In One Part Of The World, The Shortest Day In Another
This makes sense that this day is visible in two different ways in two parts of the world, the shortest and the longest. The position of the earth is the reason for the day being shorter or longer. Our planet is also inclined at about 23.5 degrees on its axis, like all other planets. In this way, due to rotation on its axis, it happens that the rays of the sun fall in the maximum amount in one place and less in the other. In the place where the sunlight comes for a short time, the day becomes short, whereas with more light becomes longer.
The Distance From The Sun Increases For 6 Months
In the Northern Hemisphere, it remains inclined toward the Sun for 6 months of the year. Because of this, there is plenty of sunlight during this whole period and it becomes hot during this time of the month. And in the remaining 6 months, this area gets away from the sun, since then the days start getting shorter.
This day is also the shortest day of the year in the country, but this time will be of different lengths in all the cities or states. For example, the day in one city may be a minute longer than in another city, but overall, today’s day is going to be the shortest in comparison to all the other days.
