Winter, that is, as of 5:23 EST today. This year’s Winter Solstice boasts a full Moon (known as the Cold Moon or Long Night’s Moon) as well as the Ursid meteor shower.
I hope you have enjoyed this shortest of days in the Northern Hemisphere, and look forward to the ever-increasing hours of sunlight to come.
