What does summer mean to you?

The solstice is coming! What does it mean to YOU? EarthSky’s Marcy Curran, Dave Adalian and Deborah Byrd talk it over, plus share some photos and thoughts contributed by the EarthSky community, in this replay of our livestream from Monday, June 17.

Hello June solstice!

We’ll reach the point in Earth’s orbit known as the June solstice this week, at 20:51 UTC (3:51 p.m. CDT) on June 20. Although no official world body has decreed it, most people nowadays will celebrate the start of Northern Hemisphere summer on this date, or Southern Hemisphere winter. What does this upcoming solstice mean to you? Short nights and long days? A high sun angle? Kids out of school? Summer fun time? Or does it bring winter for you? Join EarthSky’s Deborah Byrd, Marcy Curran and Dave Adalian LIVE, as we celebrate summer’s arrival! Watch LIVE at 17:15 UTC (12:15 p.m. CDT) Monday, June 17.
