Celebrate Summer Solstice On June 21, 2015

Solstice-460x460

The longest day of light in the year “summer solstice” is Thursday, June 21, 2015.  This is also Father’s Day.  Plan ahead and make special plans to celebrate summer solstice outdoors for Father’s Day and enjoy an extra long day of sunlight.

Summer solstice: from Latin sol “sun” and stitium “standing still”, because seen from the earth it looks like the sun halts in its tracks going northward, and moves back south.

The June solstice dates vary.  For example, it’s on June 21 in 2015, but on June 20 in 2016. A June 22 solstice will not occur until 2203. The last time there was a June 22 solstice was in 1971.

*Keep an eye out for a new Podcast “Summer Solstice Compilation Mix” coming soon from HarlemHCL.  Embellish your day and celebrate with a custom soundtrack of chillout, soul, house and latin music.

‘Solstice’ (Latin: ‘solstitium’) means ‘sun-stopping’, because the point where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day (Ill: Not to scale)
