It won’t be too hot for the official start to summer, but the sky will be mostly clear as the summer solstice is set to arrive in 3 days (at the time of this writing.)
This June 20, the Full Moon appears on the same night as the June Solstice.
A Full Moon hasn’t occurred on the same day as the Solstice since 1948.
The first day of summer 2016 will officially begin on Monday, June 20 at 4:34pm in Saskatchewan.
In Canada and the rest of the northern hemisphere, the first day of the summer season is the day of the year when the Sun is farthest north (on June 21st or 22nd).
This day is known as the Summer Solstice.
The day of the summer solstice is the longest day of the year.
The length of time elapsed between sunrise and sunset on this day is a maximum for the year.
