  • Winter Solstice Is Celebrated At Stonehenge

Today, the winter solstice, marks the first day of astronomical winter. The sun will set in Denver at 4:39 p.m. and will have nine hours and 21 minutes of daylight on the winter solstice.

A lot of us understandably think that during the winter solstice, the earth is farthest from the sun. All in all, the idea of the winter solstice is pretty depressing, especially because there are still three solid months of winter left. The sun rises at about the same time in both places on Thursday - 7:16 a.m. and 7:17 a.m., respectively - but it sets almost an hour later in St. Augustine - 4:31 p.m. vs. 5:31 p.m.

Northerners spend most of the longest solar day of the year facing away from the Sun in the cold of a winter's night. The coldest days of the year won't happen until January or February. However, there's a plus side: Since it's the shortest day of the year, that means that, slowly, but surely, the days will start getting longer.

If you live in the southernmost US, your earliest sunsets are in late November, according to EarthSky.org. The further north you are, the less sunlight you'll get.

The official, Kenneth Mallory, wrote that the ballot had both candidates' names bubbled in for the 94th District race. There will be a recount Wednesday in the 68th District, which includes parts of Richmond, Henrico, and Chesterfield.

The exact times of sunrise and sunset depend on two things: your latitude and geographic location within your time zone.

Let's give you the numbers for the day!
