Summer Solstice: [non] This year, the exact moment the summer solstice occurs is at 2013-06-21 00:03:36 am (Central Time USA), which is the moment when the Earth is tilted the most toward the sun and receives the most sunlight. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, although is not, strictly speaking, the hottest day of the year. In fact, the hottest days may come weeks after the summer solstice. The summer solstice is the first day of astronomical summer and is also referred by many simply as "the first day of summer". The summer solstice does not fall on the same day every year, rather, it can occur at any time between the 20th and the 22nd day of June in the northern hemisphere.
