points on the map of the stars. Those days themselves are often called the

solstices, but that's incorrect.

What occurs when the sun reaches its greatest distance north or south of the equator?

SolsticeThis is called the "solstice", and it happens on June 21 and December 21 (plus or minus one day, due to the cycle of leap years).

When the Sun reaches its maximum distance south, this is the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere (and the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere).Just think; in Australia, Christmas is a summer holiday!
