Tonight Marks The Summer Season!

The Summer Solstice occurs later tonight at 11:24pm. What is the summer solstice? This is when the direct rays of the sun are at their farther point northward in the Northern Hemisphere. The location? Tropic of Cancer, or 23.5 degrees North Latitude.


Since the summer solstice is occurring around midnight tonight, the longest sunlight day of the year will actually be today and tomorrow together. Sun time will be 15 hours, 21 minutes, and 56 seconds. If you look at this even further; technically, tomorrow is less than a second shorter than today. From this point forward, every day will get shorter for sunlight. The shortest day of the year is December 21st at 9 hours, 0 minutes, and 2 seconds.


From today to December 21st, we will lose 6 hours, 21 minutes and 56 seconds of daylight!
