What is Winter Solstice?
Winter Solstice is the time when the Tropic of Capricorn receives direct rays of the Sun as the South Pole tilts towards it. As the Sun’s rays fall vertically on the Tropic of Capricorn (23½° S), a larger portion of the Southern Hemisphere gets light. Therefore, it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere with longer days and shorter nights. At this time, the reverse happens in the Northern Hemisphere.
