Winter Solstice Moon

Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

Today is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This year, the solstice arrives one day before the full moon.

I couldn’t resist posting my full moon shot for Becky B’s December Squares Challenge! Click on the link for her round-up of posts.

Friday also marks the astronomical beginning of winter, even though meteorologists and climatologists view winter as starting Dec. 1, which is the start of the coldest three months in the Northern Hemisphere. After the solstice, the days slowly start to get longer again. USA Today

I admit to using this same moon photo in a previous Sunday Stills post for Bucket List Images. It’s been too cloudy for moon shots lately. May as well make those rare images work a little harder!
