June 21 is the longest day of the year
As a watchmaking company, we spend a great deal thinking about time. And while there are always technically 24 hours in a day, the summer solstice is bringing us more daylight hours to enjoy.
What we can say is that the longest days of the year are approaching fast: June 21 is the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere - and in the far north, the sun won't set at all. That is why many celebrate this day as the official start of summer. Even in Glashütte (50°50'56.8"N, 13°46'25.2"E), we'll be enjoying twilight until late. And the blue hour (the time period when the sun is four to eight degrees below the horizon) is the moment for a little romance, raising a toast, or taking the perfect photo.
The timepiece above shows the longest day of the year for you and your readers and users. Feel free to use the image in your publication—and enjoy the summer solstice!
