Happy June and the “unofficial” start of Summer! Memorial Day is winding down and we’re all looking forward to warmer weather this summer – Starting with the Summer Solstice on June 21st!

The summer solstice occurs when the Sun and Earth are at Solstice and the Sun’s elliptic pathway is in the observer’s hemisphere. At the same time, the opposite hemisphere is having its winter solstice. During the Summer Solstice, the day is the longest it will be all year. It occurs near June 21st in the northern hemisphere and signals the start of summer. The most direct sunlight (shadows with a 90° angle at noon) is at the Tropic of Cancer in the northern hemisphere. Read more in the Glossary of Astronomical Phenomena!

This leads to some cool anomalies. Today in the Arctic Circle, the phenomenon of the Midnight Sun can be observed. Due to the Earth’s atmosphere’s ability to bend light waves, the Sun can be visible during midnight south of the Arctic Circle as well.

The Bootids Meteor Shower will radiate from the Bootes constellation. Bootes is located between the Big Dipper and Corona Borealis, the Northern Crown. Most people in the Northern Hemisphere will only need to lay down on the ground to watch! The best time will be after dark on June 27th.
