For everyone more than 23.4 degrees south of the equator, happy longest day of the year! For everyone more than 23.4 degrees north of the equator, happy shortest day of the year! For everyone else … hmm, you know, I’ve never actually learned how the seasons work in that zone of maximum insolation around our planet’s belly. Well, maybe you can enjoy the fact that you don’t have several inches of snow (as we do here in Boston). Or the fact that you actually have days of relatively constant length.
Anyway, have a great solstice everyone – the cause of the season.
Also, don’t forget to celebrate Newton’s birthday on Saturday. Reason in the season.
