Summer starts Wed. early AM

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, summer begins at 12:24 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday.
That’s the summer solstice, when the hemisphere will dip toward the sun, basking in its warmth for longer than any other day.

It offers the perfect opportunity to ponder the explosive ball of plasma that makes our very existence possible. Above, last year’s solstice in Santa Monica, Calif.
