Summer Finally Arrived This Morning

While most of us were sleeping we all fell into the summer solstice at 12:04 am Central Time. According to Wikipedia the summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet’s semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the sun that it orbits. This happens twice each year, at which times the sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or the south pole.

In other words, the first day of summer represents the day with the most daylight and is referred to as the longest day of the year as far as daylight is concerned. It is the day when the sun is in the highest northern position in the Northern Hemisphere as it rises and sets. The complete opposite occurs for the first day of winter as well in December.

While we all enjoy the first day of summer, people in the Southern Hemisphere are entering the first day of winter.  I like my hemisphere right now better what about you?
