Summer Solstice has finally arrived! Today on the Northern Hemisphere, we will joyously get 15 hours and 26 minutes of pure SUN!
WHAT IS SUMMER SOLSTICE?
The timing of the solstice is not based on a specific calendar date and time. It depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator.
The word solstice comes from the Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that the Sun appears to stop at this time (and again at the winter solstice).
This summer solstice is the day with the most hours of sunlight during the whole year.
Here’s my “Summer” Daily Quote #172 of 365 days..
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. ∼ John Lubbock
