The Summer Solstice

The summer solstice, also known as estival solstice, marks the point when one of Earth’s poles tilts closest to the Sun, occurring twice annually, once in each hemisphere (Northern and Southern). In the hemisphere experiencing summer solstice, it boasts the longest period of daylight and shortest night of the year, with the Sun reaching its highest point in the sky. At the respective pole, continuous daylight prevails during its summer solstice. Conversely, the winter solstice represents the opposite event.
