What is the science behind how sunshine affects depression? I get way down in the winter and even more so when it is overcast and hazy.

Since the Sun is an abstract noun, it is not real. Therefore you are hallucinating in the Summer and in the Winter the real boring you comes out. You are a real downer dude!
