The First Day of Summer is Here!

Not only that but today marks the summer solstice.

Though it probably feels like we’ve been in summer for weeks, today is the official first day. Not only that but today marks the summer solstice, meaning we will see the longest amount of sunlight. This occurs when earth arrives at the point in its orbit where the North Pole is at its maximum tilt towards the sun, resulting in the longest day and shortest night of the calendar year.
