Happy Summer Solstice Northern Hemisphere

Hey Space Placers!

Well the longest amount of sunlight for the year has passed and we are now working our way towards winter in six months.

Here is a great write up on today, the first day of summer for the Northern Hemisphere. It is also the shortest night of the year.

Here is a great photo that explains the seasons:

The summer Milky Way is visible when it gets dark and passes from the south up towards the north and is a sight to see in dark skies.

I hope you are able to enjoy summer and get out under the sky.

Wear your sunscreen and watch out for ticks!
