Winter solstice 2020 in Northern Hemisphere

5:02 AM Eastern Time Monday, December 21 Location: 2 Highland Manor Drive Schwenksville, Pennsylvania 40.2562° N, 75.4638° W Daylight 7:21 am – 4:39 pm 9 hours, 18 minutes Mine circadian rhythm pulsates bright imperceptible increments of daylight increase fantasy fanciful heavenly flight as I imagine myself Icarus fearlessly gaining height blindly heading into sunbeam light strongly advised courtesy experts to travel toward nearest star at night, nevertheless unbeknownst plight awaits me should foolhardiness skew sense and sensibility right off kilter yours truly blithely soars reins of waxed wings held tight. Plus I, a garden variety generic guy aging long haired pencil neck geek who presently wonders why, rare astronomical phenomena hashtagged great conjunction doth defy illusory phenomena whereby, two largest planets of solar system Jupiter and Saturn separated in the sky by and bye 6 arcminutes at their closest point, which was the closest separation between the two planets since 1623. Inhabitants upon solar systems far and wide will find Earthlings and aliens alike their curiosity well supplied out of world event sponsored courtesy monopolists, who govern Geico and Nationwide renown companies insuring property on hillside made of ticky tack indirectly, fueled, impacted, and launched segregation and next of kin apartheid. Unfair injustice heaped mainly upon persons of color playing race card basic rights to win i.e. those beautiful people gifted with darker skin think swarthy complexion. Hence motive to join reparations committee (no time to wait) linkedin with Cherry Hill, New Jersey Unitarian Fellowship albeit remotely suddenly aware white privilege, I (sheepishly admit) ashamedly state an unspoken mandate to be positive force and help negate (at least when I feel better - yours truly plagued with panic attack) and help eradicate white supremacists trumpeting hate.
