Earliest Summer Solstice in 228 years on June 20.

Reviewed by Todd Vandersline / BoiseLocal.org

On Thursday, June 20th, at 2:51 PM MDT (1:51 PM PDT), the Summer Solstice will occur. This year's solstice marks the earliest occurrence in 228 years. The variation in the exact time and date of the solstice is attributed to the difference between the calendar year of 365 days and the average astronomical year of 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds. This discrepancy necessitates the use of leap years and other periodic adjustments to our calendar system. For more information, you can visit the SciJinks page at NOAA.
