The start of the astronomical summer begins today! According to Wiki:
The solstice occurs when a planet’s rotational axis, or geographical pole on either its Northern or its Southern Hemisphere, is most greatly inclined toward the star that it orbits. On the summer solstice, Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23.44°. (Likewise, the Sun’s declination from the celestial equator is 23.44°.) This happens twice each year (once in each hemisphere), when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the North or South Pole. The summer solstice occurs during the hemisphere’s summer.
So, I’m going out for a bike ride, then lunching outside, exploring a beloved neighborhood, all while soaking up the sun. However you celebrate the warm and wonderful days of summer (there are only 92), have FUN, make memories, do an NDB, share your love and SMILE!!
HAVE FUN EVERYDAY!
