Summer Season 2019, Google Doodle marks the longest day of the year, Google, today, marked the start of the summer with a doodle dedicated to the 2019 summer solstice. This period marks the longest days and shortest nights. The duration of daytime continues to decrease as the summer progresses after solstice. This makes the sun the highest point of elevation between June 20 and June 22 each year. However, in the Southern Hemisphere, people witness the shortest day of the year and it marks the official beginning of winter in the region.
On Friday, the summer solstice, the prolonged gloom endures for at least part of the day, and the typical seasonal heat and humidity is AWOL in the Berkshires and most of the Northeast. Although skies could clear soon after summer officially begins at 11:54 a.m., marking one of the longest days of the year, a bright, breezy, comfortable and rain-free weekend is likely to followed by another patch of dreary, showery skies early next week.
Google Doodle Celebrates Summer Solstice
Today’s Google Doodle celebrates Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. As the longest day of the year, the solstice also marks the official start of the summer season. On this day, people living north of the Equator will enjoy the most amount of sunlight in a single day. The further one is towards the north, the more the amount of sunlight with the Arctic Circle having sunshine for a full 24 hours.
While the Northern Hemisphere will enjoy the beginning of summers today, on the other side, which is the Southern Hemisphere, people will witness the shortest day of the year. Today the planet will be tilted at about 23.4 degrees relative to the sun’s orbit, which is why the tilted part of the Earth will have Summer Solstice. This year, the summer begins on June 21 and ends on September 23.
Scientifically speaking, the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere is when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky because the North Pole is at its maximum tilt in the sun’s direction.
Lots of countries across the northern hemisphere celebrate the arrival of summer and have celebrated it for thousands of years. Residents in the Scandinavian countries such as Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, Norway and Finland hold annual festivals celebrating the longest day of the year and what they call the “Midnight Sun.”
Celebrations in Canada and the United States may not be quite as popular, however, there are many music, art and nature festivals that are centered on the Summer Solstice.
Summer Season 2019
Summer is the most loved and hottest season. It is the perfect time for vacations, swimming, and sunbathing. Summer is great for sports and spending time with family and friends out in the forest, on the lake or beach. Fishing and barbeque are also usually considered as summer time activities.
During the season, people are much happier; they get a chance to do what they really like without worrying to get cold, and having to wear a lot of clothes. Even at midnight it is pleasant to go for a walk because of temperatures that tend to be higher and more comfortable to stay outside.
