Happy Solstice

I was reminded by the Astronomy Picture of the Day and Bad Astronomy that today is the Winter solstice, the day when the Sun reaches it's lowest point in the sky. Every day from now will see the Sun higher in the sky and gradually sunrise will come slightly earlier. Even though the worst of Winter may still be to come, here begins the countdown to Spring.

And if you do intend to party tonight, remember to wrap up warm before you go cavorting naked in the woods. It's cold at this time of year.
