Bringing you the heart of the matter in LifeCycles by Laurie Edwards-Tate-All about Summer Solstice.

Summer is coming to America! When the Sun is at its most northern point from the equator, summer solstice begins. It is also the longest day of each year, and the brightest having the most
hours of sunlight!

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, summer solstice in the Northern
Hemisphere occurs Jun 21, 12:24 A.M., Eastern Standard Time; Tuesday, June
20, 11:24 P.M., Central Standard Time; Tuesday, June 20, 10:24 P.M.,
Mountain Standard Time; and, Tuesday, June 20, 9:24 P.M. Pacific Standard
Time.

As the Sun is at its highest point in the sky, its rays hit the Earth more
directly, therefore causing a warming trend.

Most of us love summer as a time to soak up the Sun by swimming, camping,
visiting parks and participating in other forms of outdoor recreation.

It is also a time when most families travel, and many take to the
highways, byways and scenic routes while enjoying the sense of freedom
and camaraderie of the great American road trip.
