Summer Solstice

A heron in the pond in Abbey Fields.

The sun rose this morning at 4:43 a.m. and will set tonight at 9:31 p.m., giving us a longest day of the year that lasts for 16 hours and 48 minutes. (In Northfield, Minnesota, the day will only be 15 hours and 32 minutes long.) Tomorrow, the day will be two seconds shorter as we begin the long slide toward winter.
