Winter Solstice

Speaking of hope rising, today is the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. After today, the sun begins to return and the days gradually get longer. If you're in the far north, you experience the polar winter. The sun doesn't rise at all. But if you're in the far south, you're experiencing the midnight sun. The sun doesn't set. Something the far north doesn't experience until the summer solstice. Seemingly you can see Jupiter beside the nearly full moon tonight.
