Today is December 21st the shortest day of the year.  Sunrise at 7:48am.  I was unable  to see it because of the cloud cover in my area.

Over 1000 people gathered in Newgrange this morning  to watch the Sunrise.

Sunset is at 5:00 pm, I am unable to see it because of cloud cover.  Winter officially starts at 6:03pm today.  Tonight is the longest night of the year, so settle down to a long  sleep you will feel so rested in the morning.

Good night, sweet dreams!

  1. What stunning photos. I recall visiting Newgrange with my mother, and becoming aware of how cleverly it was constructed, and why, and when. It went a long way to reminding me that we are not more intelligent than we used to be. We simply have better knowledge and technology.
