Happy Summer – Summer Solstice! The longest day of the year! (northern hemisphere)

Today is the first day of Summer…the Summer Solstice – the Sun at the height of its power for the year (in the northern hemisphere).

What’s the Summer Solstice? For those who don’t know, today is the day with the longest time of daylight: the longest day of the year! Today is the day when the sun is the highest in the sky, in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, welcome Winter!

From here on in, the days are getting shorter for us northerners, while you southerners will notice your days getting longer.
