More Light


Scoll ahead to 38:59 to hear Chris Stevens’ presentation.

The Winter Solstice….

In astronomy, the seasons move in celestial cycles. As the earth rotates around the sun, it also spins on its own axis, which tilts towards the plane of its rotation (about 23.5 degrees). The northern hemisphere receives less direct sunlight.

Days of less and less light, moving towards the birth of winter and a new year. The sun appears at its lowest point in the sky, unmoving on the horizon. “Solstice” translates from the Latin “sun” and “standing still”. And in this shift, the northern hemisphere experiences its first moments of winter. And the annual winter solstice begins.

This marks the shortest day. It is also the longest night. After the darkest dark, the sun will again ascend in the northern sky as the days begin to grow longer. It is the Earth returning to light. There will be more light. And more light.
