Summer Solstice 2015
One of our interests is astronomy. How about you ... Are you interested in the sun, moon, planets, and stars? The one thing in the universe that affects our planet Earth the most is our sun. Today is the day of Summer Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere). At the risk of oversimplification let's just say this: The length of daylight will start getting shorter after today as we head to the Winter Solstice in December.
An interesting site explaining all this is Time and Date. Here is a screen shot taken today ...
Our old postcard today is one we've posted before. It's one of a series of 4 cards ... one for each season ... published by S. Porter in Chicago in about 1906.
Wishing you a fine season ahead. Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
