According to the encyclopedia, the winter solstice occurs exactly when the Earth's axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23 degrees 26 minutes, when the sun's daily maximum position in the sky is the lowest. The significance of this astronomical event is..."the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days...and is notably "more evident to those in high latitudes."
