11am – 4pm
It’s the first day of Summer and the longest day of the year so we are celebrating. Join us as we gaze upon the night sky inside our portable planetarium, STARLAB. Discover the summer constellations and their Greek origins while learning how scientists study the infinite sky above.
The Summer Solstice
Each year, the timing of the solstice depends on when the Sun reaches its farthest point north of the equator. This occurs annually on June 20 or June 21 in North America, depending on your time zone. As a major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year.
The shortest day of the year, or Winter Solstice, is December 21st this year.
