2016 summer solstice + Strawberry moon
June 20, 2016 (The Summer Solstice) is the longest day of the year for those in the northern hemisphere. Afterwards; the days become shorter.
"Solstice” means “sun still” which futhermore means that depending on the direction the earth is tilted, it will receive more of either daylight or darkness. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year because the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the direction of the sun and those living there can see up to 15-hours of daylight during this time!
