What is the time of sunset on the shortest day of the year 2020?
This year’s winter solstice – the point where the sun is lowest in the sky – will be on Monday, December 21st.
The exact time of sunrise will be around 10.02am, according to the website of the Royal Muse Ziam Greenwich.
In the North Golisfire, the sun will set in London at about 15:53.
The uniformity of winter marks the end of autumn and the arrival of winter.
But consistency will now mark the gradual increase of daylight and shorter nights.
Why is it called the shortest day of the year?
The shortest day of the year in Northern Golisfire is always December.
But over time, that is likely to change.
This is because our calendar year has 365.25 days, or how long it takes for the earth to orbit the sun.
This means that the lowest time of the sun in the sky changes by about six hours every year.
We also skip one day every four years – known as a leap year – which sets the time.
The shortest day last year was December 22 – but as 2020 is a leap year, the winter solstice date shifts back 24 hours.
