The Northern Hemisphere welcomes summer ☀️The Southern Hemisphere welcomes winter ❄️ #shorts


The summer solstice, which is when the Sun reaches the most northerly point in the sky, occurred on Friday 21st June at 22:50 CEST.

This is when the Northern Hemisphere will experience the longest day of the year and the Southern Hemisphere will experience the shortest.

This is because of Earth’s position in orbit around the Sun and the way the North Pole is tilted towards the Sun during the solstice.

This animation shows one image per day captured by the Meteosat Second Generation from 20 June 2023 until 19 June 2024 captured at approximately 17:30 CEST. You can see how the terminator line moved in the past year – tonight, that line will be at its greatest angle with respect to the axis of the Earth.

Do you live in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere?
