The June solstice, is the solstice on the Earth that occurs each June falling on the 20th to 22nd according to the Gregorian calendar. In the Northern Hemisphere, the June solstice is the summer solstice, whilst in the Southern Hemisphere it is the winter solstice, it is known as the northern solstice. The June solstice solar year is the solar year based on the June solstice, it is thus the length of time between adjacent June solstices. In 6000 BC, the December solstice solar year had a length of 50:35 in excess of 365 days and 5 hours; this shortened to 47:55 in 2000 AD. It will remain between 47:45 and 48:00 at least until 10000 AD; the following tables contain information on the length of the day on the 20th June, close to the summer solstice of the northern hemisphere and winter solstice of the southern hemisphere. The data was collected from the website of the Finnish Meteorological Institute on 20 June 2016 as well as from certain other websites; the data is arranged geographically and within the tables from the longest day to the shortest one.

The summer solstice known as midsummer, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt toward the Sun. It happens twice once in each hemisphere. For that hemisphere, the summer solstice is when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky and is the day with the longest period of daylight. At the pole, there is continuous daylight around the summer solstice. On the summer solstice, Earth's maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23.44°. The Sun's declination from the celestial equator is 23.44°. The summer solstice occurs during the hemisphere's summer; this is the June solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the December solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs sometime between June 20 and June 22 in the Northern Hemisphere and between December 20 and December 23 in the Southern Hemisphere; the same dates in the opposite hemisphere are referred to as the winter solstice. Since prehistory, the summer solstice has been seen as a significant time of year in many cultures, has been marked by festivals and rituals.
Traditionally, in many temperate regions, the summer solstice is seen as the middle of summer and referred to as "midsummer". Today, however, in some calendars it is seen as the beginning of summer. Although the summer solstice is the longest day of the year for that hemisphere, the dates of earliest sunrise and latest sunset vary by a few days; this is because the Earth orbits the Sun in an ellipse, its orbital speed varies during the year. See the Equation of time for details. Although the Sun appears at its highest altitude from the viewpoint of an observer in outer space or a terrestrial observer outside tropical latitudes, the highest altitude occurs on a different day for certain locations in the tropics those where the Sun is directly overhead at the subsolar point; this day occurs twice each year for all locations between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn because the overhead Sun appears to cross a given latitude once before the day of the solstice and once afterward. For example, Lahaina Noon occurs in July in Hawaii.
See solstice article. For all observers, the apparent position of the noon Sun is at its most northerly point on the June solstice and most southerly on the December solstice. 2016 was the first time in nearly 70 years that a full moon and the Northern Hemisphere's summer solstice occurred on the same day. The 2016 summer solstice's full moon rose just as the Sun set; the significance given to the summer solstice has varied among cultures, but most recognize the event in some way with holidays and rituals around that time with themes of religion or fertility. In some regions, the summer solstice is seen as the end of spring. In other cultural conventions, the solstice is closer to the middle of summer. Solstice is derived from the Latin words sistere.

The December solstice, is the solstice that occurs each December – on Dec 21, can vary ± 1 day according to the Gregorian calendar. In the Northern Hemisphere, the December solstice is the winter solstice, whilst in the Southern Hemisphere it is the summer solstice, it is known as the southern solstice. Recent and future dates and times, in Universal Time, of the December solstice are: The December solstice solar year is the solar year based on the December solstice, it is thus the length of time between adjacent December solstices. The length of the December solstice year has been stable between 6000 BC and 2000 at 49:30 to 50:00 in excess of 365 days and 5 hours. After 2000 it is getting shorter. In 4000 the excess time will be 48:52 and in 10000 46:45; the following tables contain information on the length of the day on December 22nd, close to the winter solstice of the Northern Hemisphere and the summer solstice of the Southern Hemisphere. The data was collected from the website of the Finnish Meteorological Institute on 22 December 2015, as well as from certain other websites.
The data is arranged geographically and within the tables from the shortest day to the longest one. The figures in the charts show the differences between the Gregorian calendar and Persian Jalāli calendar in reference to the actual yearly time of the Southern solstice; the error shifts by less than 1/4 day per year. The date of the solstice is not the same as the date of the latest sunrise and both are not the same as the date of earliest sunset; because the Earth is moving along its solar orbital path, for each solar day the Earth has to do more than one full rotation. Because the Earth's orbit is elliptical, the speed at which the Earth moves along its orbit varies. Solar days are not the same length throughout the year. "Mean time" is our way of modifying this, for our convenience, making each day the same length, i.e. 24 hours. The maximum correction is ± 15 minutes to the mean but its value changes quite around the solstices. If solar time were used rather than mean time, the latest sunrise and earliest sunset and therefore the shortest day would all be at the December solstice in the northern hemisphere.
