Hey, Northern Hemisphere, break out your sunglasses because summer is officially here.
Every year, the first day of the season falls on June 21, also known as the summer solstice — sol meaning “sun” and stare meaning “stand” in Latin. It also contains the most daylight hours of the year.
Because of the earth’s tilt, the sun will reach its zenith, shining directly over the northernmost latitude of 23.5 degrees, known as the Tropic of Cancer, according to BBC.
