This would be cool, if they included any locations in New Jersey.

On the bright side, they include Colorado Springs, Colorado. ^_^

Correct me if I'm wrong.
For the Earth, yesterday (12/21/2017) was the winter solstice for the northern hemisphere and the summer solstice for the southern hemisphere. Today (12/22/2017) it's winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern hemisphere. So if you are lying down at the equator right now (11:37 PM 12/22/2017) at any longitude, it would be winter for part of your body and summer for the other part.
