Weekend Wrap-up: June 19 – On the Eve of the Solstice

Tomorrow is the longest day of the year for everyone in the northern latitudes. North of the Arctic circle, that means the sun doesn’t dip below the horizon. As you move south, night creeps in, although twilight is a better term.

The longest period of daylight that I have experienced is about 20 hours. I do remember finishing my round of golf at around 11 PM, without having to resort to night-vision goggles.

Henges and structures around the world have been set up to mark this day (among a few others), so it you are so inclined and able to safely, enjoy the experience.

The sad thing about this is – wait for it – the days start getting shorter, so for everyone in the southern hemisphere: Right back to ya!
