Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year. Where will you be spending it today? We will be taking a picnic and watching the sunset from Es Vedra.
Also known as Midsummer the Summer Solstice gets its name from the Latin for sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still). The Sun reaches its most Northerly point and momentarily stands still before starting its journey South in the sky again until it reaches its most Southerly point – Winter Solstice, before repeating the cycle. This is basically how we get our seasons.
The Summer Solstice is the time when the Sun is at its highest or most northerly point in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere and when we receive the most hours of daylight. If you live in the Southern Hemisphere it is the reverse, so you will be having a Winter Solstice.
It’s not actually the Sun that moves North or South over the seasons although it may appear so. It’s the Earths axial tilt that causes the Sun to change position in the sky as the Earth orbits the Sun throughout the year.
