For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the longest day of the year is around the 21st; the moment of solstice where the sun reaches its most northern point in the sky is at 10:07 GMT, or 5:07 AM CDT in the US. The first day of Meteorological/climatalogical summer is June 1st. The earliest sunrise for Parker Prettykoshka and Binx this year is on the 13th or 14th, and the latest sunset is around the 27th. June also marks the end of the year for winter-related events, such as snowfall totals for 2017/18.
