June Solstice

Summer begins in the northern hemisphere at 5:13 a.m. here in Miami with the June solstice.  It means the beginning of winter in the southern hemisphere.

As you’ll remember from Grade 8 Earth Science class, summer is short for latitudes farther north and south, but they get more daylight during the summer months.  After ten days in Alaska, last night was the first time I’d seen full dark at night since June 9.
