Where’d the sun go?

Today, June 21st, is the shortest day of the year in Melbourne (as well as other places in the Southern Hemisphere).

It is the winter solstice, it also coincides with the longest day of the year for those living in the Northern Hemisphere (Summer Solstice).

The length of the day in this case is determined by the amount of time of daylight. Have a look at the Melbourne Planetarium website for a bit more information on it.
Very fascinating.
