Winter solstice: the southernmost extents of day

The 2011 winter solstice occurred at about 11:30 pm PST December 21. As this is the middle of the night, here are the sunset on the 21st (lower) and the sunrise on the 22nd (upper) bracketing the solstice as seen from two different vantage points in the Berkeley Hills. Photo: D.H. Parks
