What happens on the Summer Solstice?

The Summer Solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. It occurs on June 21st this year.

There are a number of things that happen on the Summer Solstice. First, the sun reaches its highest point in the sky during the day. This is called summer solstice sunrise. Second, the sun sets at its lowest point in the sky during the day. This is called summer solstice sunset. Finally, there is a shift in Earth’s rotational axis, which means that Earth’s north pole moves towards the sun for a few weeks during the Summer Solstice.

Therefore, there are two solstices that occur annually: around the summer solstice (commonly referred to as “Summer Solstice” for being the primary day of summer and therefore the longest day of the year) and December 21 (commonly referred to as “Winter Solstice” for being the primary day of winter and the shortest day of the year).
