Tomorrow marks summer solstice

Tomorrow marks summer solstice, the longest day of the year.

It occurs when the sun reaches its farthest point north of the equator and marks the beginning of summer for the northern hemisphere. The exact moment will be at 6:51 a.m. eastern time.

The opposite is happening in the southern half of the planet, the shortest day of the year and the onset of winter.
