The first day of winter, also known as the winter solstice, happens every year around December 21st. Today we mark the occasion with winter holidays and festivities, but how did this come to be? What motions are responsible for the holidays we celebrate today? For this class, Program Educator Eric Harris takes you through Earth’s dynamic orbit, movements of the Sun and stars in the sky, and how humanity has observed these motions for thousands of years.
