Happy Summer Solstice! — Longest day of the year today

Happens today at 11:32 PM Eastern.

The West is sweltering, and the East is steamy, too, just in time for the summer solstice. Sunday marks our longest day and shortest night of the year and the first “official” day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

This year’s solstice straddles two calendar days, arriving at 11:32 p.m. Eastern time on June 20. In North America, Sunday will bring the most daylight, while in Europe and Asia, Monday will technically be the longest day of the year, though just by a few seconds.

Yep, saddest day of the year, it’s all downhill from here. On the bright side, it’s only six months until the days start to get longer again.

According to Accuweather daylight and nighttime lengths we don't actually start losing minutes until the 26th.

Evil sun! It will stay 90 plus for an hour after sunset until late September!

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater
