[Stemed-l] Sunwheel, Sky-Watching Events Mark Winter Solstice Dec. 21



Sunwheel, Sky-Watching Events Mark Winter Solstice Dec. 21


The public is invited to witness sunrise and sunset associated with
the winter solstice among the standing stones of the UMass Amherst
Sunwheel on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Heavy rain or
snow will cancel the events. The winter solstice occurs when nights
are longest and days are shortest in the Northern Hemisphere and the
sun rises and sets at its most southerly spot along the horizon.
