From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Solstices are those moments of the year when the sun reaches its southernmost or northernmost position, at the Celestial Tropic of Capricorn or Celestial Tropic of Cancer, respectively.
The dates of the Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice are reversed for the northern and southern hemispheres.
