The Northern Hemisphere will experience the longest day of the year during the solstice

The hottest season of the year begins arriving in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21 each year with the summer solstice, but scientists expect an earlier date for that event.

The longest day of the year It will happen in 2024 a few hours earlier than expected: on June 20, astronomers explained to

The summer solstice marks the beginning of the season in the Northern Hemisphere and on this day the sun reaches its maximum height in the sky, which means it will be the longest day of the year.

The exact dates of solstices and equinoxes change every year, which complicates comparing seasonal data. The beginning of summer can occur on three different dates on the calendar, between June 20 and 22.

Scientists explained that the exact duration of sunlight on that day will vary slightly depending on the specific latitude within the country.

In places like the equator, variation in day length is minimal throughout the year. They point out that as one moves toward the poles, the difference becomes clearer.

The longest day in 2024 in the Southern Hemisphere will be December 21.

Although June 20 will be the longest day in the year 2024 in the Northern Hemisphere, it must be taken into account that this date varies every year and depends on the duration of each Earth’s rotation around the sun.

In the city of Holguin, before this solstice, at 08:00 pm on a Tuesday, we were still enjoying the sun’s rays, which is why the townspeople prefer to have dinner later when night falls.
