About this Episode

This year of 2023, on Thursday, December 21 at exactly 10:27PM, the sun’s rays will shine on the northern hemisphere at their lowest most acute angle. Since colder air holds less humidity, the stars can seem at their brightest. So when we bundle up, wander into the cold night, and stare up at the stars, we can feel both alone and connected to everything.

If you are in the Philadelphia area, come to 1906 Rittenhouse Square for our humanist Winter Solstice program at 11:00AM EST. If you are elsewhere on our planet on December 17, join our Zoom version at 2PM here: www.tiny.cc/phillyethics
