Since 1887, the Royal Institute of Meteorology of Belgium has recorded every second of sunlight in the country of King Philip. On average, each December accumulates 45 sunny hours. Until Christmas Day of this year, the people of Brussels had only 4 hours and 54 minutes of sun. In fact, between December 18 and 25 there was not a minute of sunlight. To the antipodes of the 84 hours of last year. To measure sunstroke (or “effective sun”), an apparatus known as Campbell-Strokes heliograph is often used.
