The Winter Solstice in Australia

I don't know that I'll be attending any festival, but I'll be having a few beers, that's for sure!

I don’t know that I’ll be attending any festival, but I’ll be having a few beers, that’s for sure!

Right now in South Australia it is the 21st of June 2014. This is the shortest day of the year, otherwise known as the Winter Solstice.

The sun rose at 7:23 am and will set at 5:11 pm, meaning we will get 9 hours 48 minutes and 20 seconds of daylight. For some reason I’ve always found it fascinating to flick through the sunrise/sunset times for different places around the world. Don’t ask me why, but I can do it for hours and not get sick of it! I’m weird eh!

Time for a coffee:
