June: The Beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemishere

The longest day of light occurs on June 20th or 21st each year in the northern hemisphere when the sun reaches its highest point above the celestial equator. This is known as Midsummer or Summer Solstice and traditionally marks a time for celebration with bonfires, festivals and gatherings.

In addition to Summer Solstice, there are several other important astronomical events that occur during June. These include Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on June 5th-6th and a Total Solar Eclipse on June 21st which will be visible only from parts of northern Canada as well as Greenland and Russia’s far eastern coastline.
