The longest day of the Year...




At noon- specifically at 13:51 – the midsummer takes place that officially launches the start of the summer in the northern hemisphere! In fact today will be the longest day of the year! 
The Sun will be located at the highest point in the sky and daylight will last 14.5 hours! In fact the North Pole of the Earth will be literally facing the Sun. 
Starting from Sunday, the days will slowly begin to shorten, until almost they are equated with the nights during the autumn equinox.
