After the Summer Solstice Comes the Night
OutdoorHub Reporters 06.20.12
Blisteringly hot weather has already hit us at the Outdoor Hub HQ in Michigan, but today, June 20, marks the first official day of summer and the summer solstice. As the sun reaches its zenith in the sky (its highest point), earth is illuminated for its longest day of the year, with 14 to 16 hours of sunshine in the United States (depending on one’s exact location). But some of us like the night too. So when the sunny celebration of the summer solstice wears away, take a look at some of the most beautiful night skies visible within the United States presented in the video below.
