Winter Trifecta: Solstice, Full Moon, Meteor Shower on Friday, Saturday
There will be a winter trifecta the next few days with the winter solstice, a full moon and a meteor shower. The winter solstice -- when the Earth's titled axis is facing its farthest from the sun in the Northern Hemisphere -- happens at 3:23 p.m. Friday and marks the start of winter. Friday will also be the day with the least amount of daylight. Starting Saturday, daylight will gradually extend each day until the summer solstice in June.
