SUMMER BEGINS TODAY!

LATIN...SOL-SUN...SISTIT-STANDS STILL.

For several days before and after each solstice, the SUN appears TO STAND STILL IN THE SKY...that is, its noontime elevation does not seem to change.

SUMMER SOLSTICE, the SUN is directly overhead at noon at the TROPIC OF CANCER.

In the Northern Hemisphere the longest day and shortest night of the year occurs on this date marking the beginning of SUMMER.  Whether SUMMER or WINTER SOLSTICE, the SUN APPEARS TO STAND STILL IN THE SKY.

STAY TUNED...

SUMMER SOLSTICE RITUALS...etc.

Celebrations...etc.

Parties...etc.

Poems...etc.
