What do you know about the Summer Solstice?

I found this post very interesting and thought I would share it with you☀️

Summer Solstice Info: ☀️

In 2019, the June solstice will occur on Friday, June 21, at 5:54 pm in Málaga. ☀️

This date marks the official beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring when Earth arrives at the point in its orbit where the North Pole is at its maximum tilt (about 23.5 degrees) toward the Sun, causing the longest day and shortest night of the calendar year. ☀️🌖

The “longest day” means the longest period of sunlight. ☀️

At the June solstice, the Northern Hemisphere receives sunlight at the most direct angle for the year. ☀️

In terms of daylight, this day is 5 hours, 2 minutes longer than on December Solstice.☀️

Earliest sunrise is on June 13 or June 14. Latest sunset is on June 28 or June 29…☀️
