Get ready to bask in the summer sun because we just experienced the summer solstice, the longest day of the entire year. It's like Mother Nature's way of saying, "Let the summer adventures begin!"
So, why does the solstice happen? Well, it's all thanks to Earth's tilt. Our planet has a 23.5-degree tilt on its axis, and as it orbits around the sun, the Northern Hemisphere gets up closer to those rays during the summer. That means more direct sunlight and long days to savor!
So, grab your shades, lather up in sunscreen, and embrace summer. It's time to indulge in exciting activities and make unforgettable summer memories. Let the fun commence! ☀️
