Escabar_MimiSun lovers rejoice — summer arrives on Friday, June 21 at 1:04 EDT. The Summer Solstice is when the Sun is farthest north. Some people think the Earth is actually closer to the sun during the northern hemisphere’s summer but it really is closest to the sun in December. The summer solstice has the most daylight hours of the year for those north of the equator with the length of time elapsed between sunrise and sunset at about 14½ hours.
