Winter unofficially arrived in Southeast New Brunswick a few weeks ago but it officially arrived today at 6:44am.

The winter solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year.

In Greater Moncton on 21 December, the length of daylight is 8 hours, 37 minutes, 39 seconds.

The Sun is directly overhead of the Tropic of Capricorn and the days will continue to lengthen as it continues moving north toward the Tropic of Cancer.
