Summer Sizzle

JUNE SOLSTICE 2021

In the Northern Hemisphere, the June solstice occurs when the Sun navigates the northernmost path in the sky. This designates the first day of summer in the northern half of the globe.  The word “solstice” comes from Latin solstitium—from sol (Sun) and stitium (still or stopped).

The timing of the June solstice is not based for any specific calendar date or time; it depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the celestial equator. Therefore, the solstice does not always occur on the same day. Currently, it shifts between June 20, 21, and 22.

Today we expect the temperatures to be in the 80s in the Seattle Region. Summer coolers and snacks are packed for lunch at the beach. Enjoy your first day of summer if you are in the northern hemisphere.
