Summer is the season for long, sunny days, pool parties and evening barbecues on the patio. And summer solstice—the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere—officially marks the beginning of the sunny months to come. It occurs during the brief moment when the Earth’s axial tilt is located at the greatest inclination toward the Sun. This is what makes it the longest day of the year. So, with the changing of seasons, it’s the perfect time to take a moment and appreciate the onset of another South Florida summer. Engineered Air is here to help you do just that.
– 3 Ways to Celebrate Summer Solstice
in South Florida –
1. Throw a Summer Solstice Party
Take the official start of summer as an opportunity to spend time celebrating with friends and family. Go for white decor, fill vases with summer flowers (peonies, daisies and hydrangea are all great choices), add some votives or festival lights for outdoor lighting and keep the dress code casual.
2. Look Up: Do Some Astronomical Observation
If you live in South Florida, 6:34 p.m. on June 20, 2016 marks the official beginning of summer. If you want to see the exact seasonal transition with your own eyes, head outside to look at the sky. Whether you’d like to honor midsummer rituals held by civilizations and societies throughout history and the world, or you’d simply like to see the sun on this astronomically special day, it’s something everyone should try to witness at least once in their lifetime.
Pick a prime viewing location, find out the exact movements of the sun in your area, check the weather forecast, put your sunnies on and head out for an astronomical adventure!
