The summer solstice marks the beginning of this season in the northern hemisphere and on this day the sun reaches its maximum height in the sky, which will mean that it will be the longest day of the year

The arrival of the hottest season of the year in the Northern Hemisphere begins every June 21 with the summer solstice, however, scientists predict an earlier date for that event.

The longest day of the year will occur in 2024 a few hours earlier than expected: on June 20, astronomers explained to tutiempo.com

The summer solstice marks the beginning of this season in the northern hemisphere and on this day the sun reaches its maximum height in the sky, which will mean that it will be the longest day of the year.

The precise dates of the solstices and equinoxes change each year, which complicates the comparison of seasonal data. The beginning of summer can occur on three different dates on the calendar, between June 20 and 22.

The exact duration of sunlight on that day will vary slightly depending on the specific latitude within the country, the scientists explain.

In places like the equator, the variation in day length is minimal throughout the year. As one moves towards the poles, the difference becomes more pronounced, they point out.

The longest day of 2024 in the southern hemisphere will be December 21.

Although June 20 will be the longest day of the year in 2024 in the Northern Hemisphere, it must be taken into account that this date varies each year and depends on the duration of each Earth’s orbit around the Sun.
