Whats the shortest day of the year in the northern hemishere?

Answered by Guest

December 21st in the Northern because of the winter solstice. The sun reaches its most southerly declination of -23.4 degrees. In other words, it is tilted furthest away from the Sun. Therefore, there is no direct sunlight making the hours shorter. In the Southern hemisphere summer days are longer.
