Happy Solstice!

 December 2021 - Toronto ON

And just like that the days will get longer.

Local marker right next to our building in Sheldon Lookout, shows the location of the sun for the winter solstice on Lake Ontario.

We will notice that our sunsets have moved as far west as they do and will now slowly start moving to the right.

I found this image here which basically shows how our sunsets move. BTW this article also mentions our marker above.


  1. I have noted quite a difference in where the sun rises and sets in comparison to summertime.

  2. It is amazing how much the sun moves, as we've discussed before and only really noticed when you have a large highrise big sky view. I would guess it moves across the sky about 30 degrees.

  3. To me it strange how low the sun is in the southern sky. But it now the sun will slowly be heading up in North of Equator.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  4. YES for the days getting longer!! I hate the dark half...
    Very cool sign!
