” Summer is almost here and that means it’s time to have unlimited fun under the sun. On Saturday, June 21, at exactly 6:15 a.m. EDT, the Summer Solstice will take place.
The Summer Solstice is officially the longest day of the year, but it also marks the start of the summer. This is the time when “the sun reaches its northernmost point in the sky” according to IBT. The word “solstice” is Latin and comes from “sol” and “sistere,” which means “sun stands still.” The terms refers to the sun’s position during the solstice, “the sun appears to pause before its position in the sky reverses direction.”
