Happy Summer!

June 21 is the Summer Solstice (derived from the Latin sol or "sun" and sistere meaning "to stand still")—the day when the sun shines in the northern hemisphere for the longest period of time all year.

This year, an estimated 20,000 druids, hippies and others gathered at prehistoric Stonehenge in southern England as part of an annual pilgrimage marking the event. The sun rose at 4:52am, aligning with the Heel Stone, located just outside the main circle of ancient rocks.
