It's summer

So, it's officially summer today, 21st June 2011. We also call today as summer solstice or you can call it tropic of Cancer. So, what does it mean?

Some basic about the Earth. We know that our Earth is tilted 23 degrees and 26 minutes. Therefore, on the day that the sun reached the highest point in the sky which is 23d26', then we named that day as summer solstice. And on this day, we will have the longest day (shortest night) in a year and after this day, then length of night is growing longer and length of day getting shorter.

So, what does the summer solstice mean to you?
