Fun in the Midnight Sun

Summer Solstice 2022

Today marks the Winter solstice (December 21, 2021). The winter solstice in the northern hemisphere marks the 24-hour period with the fewest daylight hours of the year. That is why it is known as the shortest day of the year, or the longest night of the year.

However, six months from today, June 21, 2022 is the Summer Solstice, when the Sun travels the longest path through the sky, and that day therefore has the most daylight

I plan on celebrating this celestial phenomenon in Fairbanks, Alaska during their midnight sun festival (the Sunday before the solstice) and on the actual day of the Summer Solstice, I plan on being in the town of Wiseman, Alaska , some 60 miles north of the Arctic Cirlce ( 67°26′0″N 150°5′40″W ) enjoying the Arctic Summer and fishing some of Alaska’s wild rivers and streams.
