Summer Solstice

It’s the summer solstice, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. We have variable day length because the Earth is tilted in its rotation. This article in the NYTimes wonders if a tilt like Earth’s is necessary for life elsewhere in the universe.

I always feel a mix of relish and sadness on the solstice, because the sun starts heading back to winter just as the summer is beginning.
