The Longest Day

"Summer Solstice 21 June 2011 - Northern Hemisphere

21st June 2011 is the day of the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and simultaneously the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Sun reaches its highest - most northerly point in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere and recieves the most hours of daylight. For those in the Southern Hemisphere the Sun will be at its most southerly - lowest position and receive the fewest hours of sunlight.

The Sun reaches its highest point directly over The Tropic of Cancer, 23° 26′ 16″ and there are 24 hours of daylight north of the Arctic Circle (66.5° n), and 24 hours of darkness south of the Antarctic Circle (66.5°s).

In June the Earth is further away from the Sun than its approach during winter, and reaches its apogee (most distant point) from the Sun about July 3rd. Earth reaches is perigee (closest approach) to the Sun around January 4th.

For thousands and thousands of years, people have celebrated, and ancient civalisations constructed complex architecture's."

Summer is literally here!
And 2 nights back it was hot, reminded us of our homeland
Owh I miss the air-conditioners!
But as the famous saying goes, England and it's unpredictable weather!
It was quite chilly again today

Anyway, with the arrival of summer, we get to enjoy these (half price at the supermarkets :D)!

Ooh la la!!
Lazat-ness!
