Summer Solstice

sunThere are two solstices that occur every year, and tomorrow just happens to be one of them. Tomorrow the sun will be at the highest point in the sky as seen from either of the poles until about 6 months from now. But unlike the winter solstice, the summer solstice offers tons of sunshine. This means that tomorrow is the longest day of the year! (Unless you’re a stickler who insists that each and every day of the year is the same duration of 23 hours 56 minutes and 4.1 seconds.)

So what does that mean? It means you should take this once-a-year opportunity to get out and play in the sun! Every second that you can. Ride a bike, go for a walk, take a hike, go for a swim, whatever, just get out and do something!

Here are a couple of  Arkansas events honoring the solstice, if you’d like to add something special to your celebration:

Sun time is fun time, but make sure to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen. The sun provides light, life, and hours of entertainment, but it sure can burn you.
