Summer solstice or astronomical summer usually occurs in the Northern Hemisphere in June – 20 or 21

On the day of the summer solstice, the sun rises above the horizon to its greatest height and remains there the longest, so the inhabitants of the Northern Hemisphere in June expect the longest day and the shortest night.

Accordingly, many are interested in when the summer solstice or the longest day in 2021 comes.

When is the longest day in 2021?

The summer solstice or astronomical summer in the Northern Hemisphere in 2021 will come on June 21 at 07:31 Tbilisi time – the longest day of the year will last 17 hours and 33 minutes.

Summer solstice occurs on June 20 only in leap years.

The name of the astronomical event arose as a result of the fact that the midday heights of the Sun in the sky are almost unchanged – the luminary, before and after the solstice, almost does not change declination for several days.

Then the celestial body begins to descend to the south and daylight hours slowly decrease.

Since ancient times, many peoples considered the day of the summer solstice an important event and widely celebrated, therefore, numerous rituals, signs and fortune-telling are associated with it, which have survived to this day.
