Summer Solstice

140621-XXX Summer Solstice (Saturday 21st June 2014)

The Summer Solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet’s semi-axis, in either the northern, is most leaning toward the star (our Sun) that it orbits.

Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the sun is 23½° – this happens once each year in the summer, at which times the sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the Northern.

Did you know?
Southern Hemisphere reaches the “Shortest Day” today as the “Winter Solstice”?
