Happy Summer Solstice…

Today, June 20, is the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, which means that today is the longest day of 2012.

According to Almanac.com, the Sun reaches its most northern point in the sky at local noon on the summer solstice, which creates more sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere on this day than any other. We’re already past noon, though, and it’s all downhill from here: After this date, days start getting shorter and the sun gets progressively lower in the sky until mid December.

The summer solstice falls today at 7:08 p.m. EDT.
