summer solstice 2016

summer solstice tree and light.

The Summer Solstice is today, June 20, 2016, at 5:34 pm central time. Sunrise is at 6:42 am and sunset is at 8:57 pm, for a total of about 14 hours and 14 minutes of daylight, the longest day of the year. The Solstice is also officially the first day of summer. And this year, this month’s strawberry moon—another name for June’s full moon—has the added bonus that it falls on the same day as the 2016 Summer Solstice.

From here on out, the days will become shorter, the nights longer, until December 21, 2016 in the early hours of the morning, the shortest day of the year and the relentless turning of the wheel of time will continue.
