Winter Solstice

Today is the shortest day of the year (winter solstice in the northern hemisphere), and the first day of winter. I'll be glad to see the days getting longer.

I'm posting a couple of pictures of Stonehenge from my 2000 England trip. Stonehenge is a neat place to visit, and it probably served as an observatory. There is an alignment that reveals the first rays of sun on the winter solstice, which is why I'm posting these pics today. Enjoy!
