21st June 2011

This is the point where the Sun is at its highest point which is also its most northerly point in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere and when we receive the most hours of daylight.

The Sun reaches its most Northerly point in the sky at 17:16 UTC. It is only at the point momentarily where it will make its way south shortly after. The days will get shorter and shorter from now until our Winter Solstice in December.
