Summer Solstice (2024)

Today is, of course, the day of every year — but in particular this year — when the most amount of daylight is experienced by those of us resident north of the equator. Those to the south of same experience the greatest amount of darkness. In the north it is also the day when the sun sets and rises at its northern most points.

If you live in the north and are looking for a new place to live, you may want to insure that the side of your residence that you wish to be your coolest in summer faces south. For this same side will be the warmest in winter.

Now biologists and physicists do not always agree. For the biologist summer began nearly a month ago. For the physicists who studies astronomy summer begins today.

In either case, I wish you a Happy Summer!
