When is Colorado’s Longest Day in 2014?

ThinkStock

The Summer Solstice is coming up on June 21st, 2014; but what exactly does that mean?

June 21 at 6:51 a.m. EDT is the summer solstice, the moment the sun is directly shining down on the Tropic of Cancer, an imaginary line north of the equator. This is the longest day of the year for the Northern Hemisphere and marks the beginning of summer. Because of the Earth’s tilt, this day marks the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Because of this tilt, we have seasons.

In Colorado, we’ll have around 14 hours of daylight on the 21st (tomorrow).  Sunrise will be at 5:32 am, and sunset will occur at 8:31 pm. After that, the days will gradually start getting shorter as we head back towards Winter…

…but we don’t have to talk about Winter right now. :)

What are you going to do with all that extra daylight?  Let us know in the comments!
