Today's Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, marks the shortest day of the year and the longest night. The opposite is true for the Northern Hemisphere, where the Summer Solstice marks the longest day and the shortest night. The southern seasons are explained in the diagram below.

In Melbourne the sun rose at 7:35 am and set at 5:08 pm today. Solstice sunset photo below with a mosaic of some of my "astronomical" art pieces (see more on Instagram @jammysevenk).

This post is part of the Mosaic Monday meme,
and also part of the Blue Monday meme,
and also part of the Seasons meme.


  1. I love your Solstice art! :)

  2. Delightful images to mark another change of seasons.

  3. Great sunset! Nice paintings too. #Allseasons

  4. Coincidentally, we visited the only full-size replica of Stonehenge today - it is in Montana!!! I had completely missed that yesterday was the solstice .. I am a little bummed that our days will get shorter from here ... Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  5. I like the two charts side by side.

  6. Wonderful sunset shot. The collage looks great!
