Summer Solstice Time Is Here 21 Jun 13

Summertime officially arrived in the Northern Hemisphere overnight. The Summer Solstice took place at approximately 4 minutes after midnight. That was the moment that the sun appeared to pause above the Tropic of Cancer, and the Earth was lighted from the Antarctic Circle to the North Pole and beyond it to the Arctic Circle on the far side of the planet. A full moon is coming up this weekend as well, and early Sunday morning it will be the closest and brightest moon of the year.
