Summer is Here!

Solstices and Equinoxes

Positioning of the sun for each of the equinoxes and solstices.

Happy Summer Solstice, everyone!

Today is the longest day of the year.  It is the day that the sun reaches the Tropic of Cancer, the northernmost extent of the sun in the equatorial zone.  The sun is highest in the Northern sky; lowest in the Southern sky on this day.
