History of June Solstice in Dominica and How to Celebrate/ Observe It

The June Solstice occurs when the sun is directly overhead at the Tropic of Cancer. This happens once a year on June 21st in the Northern Hemisphere and December 21st in the Southern Hemisphere. The word “solstice” comes from the Latin sol (sun) and stice (still), meaning “sun standing still.” At the solstice, the sun’s path (the ecliptic) reaches its northernmost point in the sky. The day of the June solstice is the longest day of the year and has the shortest night. In Dominica, the average temperature is about 86°F (30°C).
