View Of Early Morning Sky Today During 2022 Summer Solstice And First Day Of Summer

Light clouds cover the sky during the 2022 Summer Solstice this morning over White Rock. This solstice marks the official beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring when Earth arrives at the point in its orbit where the North Pole is at its maximum tilt (about 23.5 degrees) toward the Sun, resulting in the longest day and shortest night of the calendar year. On the day of the June solstice, the Northern Hemisphere receives sunlight at the most direct angle of the year. Source: AlmanacPhoto by Nancy Ann Hibbs
