Even though we didn’t exactly have a long, cold winter, let’s celebrate the official arrival of summer!
Today is the summer solstice. It’s the longest day of the year followed by the shortest night. The actual moment of the solstice will occur at about 6:09 p.m. this evening, while the sun sits directly above the Equator, in the Pacific Ocean to the west of Hawaii.
Since the soltice doesn’t actually happen until dinner time, the first full official day of summer is really Thursday!
As you may remember from your grade school science lessons, the seasons and the changing lengths of the day
