june solstice

This has confirmed that the June solstice of 2018 will occur on Thursday on June 21st at 6:07 AM ET. The people who all live in Earth’s northern hemisphere and this will mark the longest day of the year. This solstice will also see the end of spring, and this is the arrival of summer, and it is a gradual retreat towards the season fall, and an equinox will mark it.

The people who will be in the southern hemisphere and it is said to be exactly the opposite, and the June solstice marks the start of winter and the days have already reached the shortest and darkest and daylight will last longer and it will grow stronger as the September equinox approaches. The two things which have driven the seasonal clock and Earth’s tilted axis and the orbiting of a planet around the Sun.

Earth usually orbits around the sun once in every 365 days and six hours with the rotation of the planet around its axis once per day which is tilted around its axis.  This tilt is about 23.45 degrees, and for this, it provides different parts of the world with various intensities of light over the course of the year. The rotation of the Earth keeps the heart of the sun even on the planet.

June Solstice occurs when the sun’s high point in the sky, and it is known as zenith, and it reaches the maximum of the year. From the space, it is seen that when Sun’s direct rays creep the farthest north and it is a line which is known as Tropic of Cancer.

When you stand on the Tropic of Cancer at noon on June 21st, then you will see that the sun will appear more or less directly overhead. The shadow will also be at the absolute minimum, and the length of daylight will be at the longest. This will become more extreme when you go to the north, and it will refract sunlight farther when you go farther from the equator.
