During the winter solstice, residents will be able to witness the sun on their southernmost position on Friday at 2:23 pm, while the Earth is tilted away from the sun, officials say.
Due to the inclination of the Earth on its axis, every hemisphere experiences the winter when it is inclined from the sun and the summer when it is inclined towards the sun.
Thus, while Santa Clarita may experience winter in the northern hemisphere, it is the peak of summer in the southern hemisphere.
The four seasons are determined in relation to winter and summer solstices and spring and autumn equinoxes, officials say.
As the day turns around during the night, residents under the evening sky will have the opportunity to see the "meteor ursid", which is expected to reach during the solstices on Friday, December 21 and Saturday, December 22. annually active between December 17 and December 24, officials say.
Unfortunately, the bright light of full moon can make it difficult to watch the rain show, credited with the nickname "The Damn Ursidi" for this year's event by NASA's meteorist Bill Cooke.
Apart from experiencing the first shorter days, residents can expect to testify on the final full moon in 2018, December 22, which is otherwise known as the cold moon, NASA said.
Although the Moon will look full in the night of the winter solstice, the official time and day of the cold moon is December 22 at around 21: 49h, CNN reports.
The next time the Cold Moon is scheduled to appear during the winter solstice is 2029, according to officials.
