ISLAMABAD – Tonight will be the longest night of the year 2014 and the day was shortest day of the year, PakistanTribe reported.
Tonight will be the longest night of the year 2014 and the day of 22nd December was the shortest day. Duration of the night will be for 14 hours in Punjab whereas the duration of day was 10 hours.
After tonight the night’s duration will start decreasing and days will become longer in duration. On the 21st and 22nd March the duration of day and night will become equal.
It was also mentioned in an article published in international media that tonight will be the longest ever night in the history of earth. It was said that due to the rotation of the Earth gradually slowing down over time, this winter solstice would feature the longest night ever.
However this information is not correct as per the longest night of the world’s history but it will be the longest night of year 2014.
