Here’s what you need to know about summer solstice: Why June 21 is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

The day length in New Delhi is 13:58:01. Sunrise is at 5:23 am, and sunset is at 7:21 pm.

North of the Equator, June 21 is the longest day of 2021. Known as the summer solstice, the longest day of the summer season, it is technically the longest day of the year. This will happen around 9:02 am on Monday (Indian Standard Time) when the sun is directly overhead the Tropic of Cancer, or, to be more precise, properly overhead 23.5 degrees north latitude.

What is the significance of the summer solstice?

The Northern Hemisphere gets more direct sunlight between March and September because it rotates on its axis. On the other hand, the Southern Hemisphere has more sunlight the rest of the year.

The north pole tilts toward the sun during the Solstice, while the south pole tilts away from it, allowing the Earth’s axis to complete one turn each day.

This imaginary axis passes through the middle of the Earth from top to bottom and is always tilted at 23.5 degrees concerning the sun. Accordingly, the Solstice is the moment in time when the North Pole points directly toward the sun. Conversely, “Solstice” refers to the period when the sun remains stationary.

The sun sent out more energy than it ever has before on this particular day. 

The Northern Hemisphere receives the most sunlight during this period on June 20, 21, or 22. By contrast, the Southern Hemisphere experiences its longest nights on the Solstice – or December 21, 22, or 23.

What will the daylight hours be on Monday?

During the summer solstice, a specific place in the Northern Hemisphere receives more or less light depending on its latitudinal location. From the Equator, one receives more light during the summer solstice the further north one travels. Therefore, there are no sunsets in the Arctic Circle during the winter solstice.

The sunrise at New Delhi will be at 5:23 am, and the sunset will be at 7:21 pm, making the day length 13:58:01. Additionally, Mumbai will see a lower day length at 13:16:20, sunrise at 6:02 am, and sunset at 7:18 pm. Chennai is even closer to the Equator, where the morning will be at 5:43 am, the evening will be at 6:37 pm, and the day length will be the shortest among significant cities at 12:53:48.

In addition to being the longest day of the year, June 21 does not necessarily mark the earliest sunrise or latest sunset. Depending on the country’s latitude.
