Summer offically arrives at 7:28 am Eastern time today for those in the northern Hemisphere, but what exactly are we marking on this date? Known as the Summer Solstice, this is the time of the year when the Earth’s axis is tilted as far it can towards the Sun. For skywatchers this means that the Sun reaches its highest point in our skies and we get to enjoy the longest daylight hours of the year.
Enjoy the Summer Solstice – after all it only comes once a year.
