Coming up – the Solstice on June 21

In 2022, the June solstice occurs on Tuesday, June 21, marking the astronomical first day of summer sy 5:14am

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. (By longest “day,” we mean the longest period of sunlight hours.)

In Fredericksburg we will have 14h 49 minutes of daylight from 5:48am to 8:38pm
