Subscribe to MinutePhysics! December has the longest solar days (noon-to-noon) because of the weird way a combination of the axial tilt of the earth and the eccentricity of its elliptical orbit conspire in December. Perihelion + Solstices = Long Days.

The reverse magnus effect – Curving and bending a ball using the magnus effect is common in soccer, tennis, and baseball. The effect can be reversed though – kick the ball the same way, and it will bend in the opposite direction!
