Approximately 400 years later, the opportunity to see Jupiter and Saturn from the wonderful and unique Mahayuti Telescope
On 21st December 2020, i.e. on the day of Mahayuti, both the planets Jupiter and Saturn will be very close to each other only 0.1 degree away.
December 21, 2020 is a special day. The longest night of the year and the shortest day ever!
So don’t miss this ……….
Hours: 6 to 8 p.m.
Today is Winter Solstice. I.e. the smallest day of the year. Last year the Winter Solstice came on December 22nd. But, this time it’s December 21st. Earlier in 2017, Winter Solstice also came on December 21.
Why do these days get bigger and smaller? Could there be a shorter day of the year than December 21st and 22nd? What does solstice mean and how many types are there? Does it also have an effect on the weather? Let’s find out …
The North Hemisphere is tilted towards the sun for six months of the year. This brings direct sunlight into the hemisphere. Areas in the North Hemisphere, meanwhile, have a hot season. The remaining six months the area goes away from the sun and the day starts to get shorter.
Will the length and timing of the smallest day of the year be the same?
Different cities need the smallest day of the year today, but the length will vary. In Delhi, for example, the sun will rise at 7.10 am and set at 5.29 pm. I.e. the length of the whole day is 10 hours 19 minutes. In Bhopal, the sun will rise at 6.58 am and set at 5.40 pm. That is, the length of the whole day will be 10 hours 42 minutes.
