Happy Solstice 2013!

December 21, 2013. Brooklyn, NY
Sunrise 7:16 AM Sunset 4:31 PM 

This is a little bracket of the shortest day of the year- observed through my kitchen window by the Williamsburg Bridge. 

FYI The sunset time had flattened out for several weeks while the sun continued (and still does) to rise later each day. That's why the days were still shrinking-- not because of a closing in from either end. By this time next week, the sunrise and sunset will be moving away from one another once again and what has been a very slow creep into darkness will start to open much more rapidly into the light.

So Happy Solstice- And here we go again!
