LONG SHADOWS IN JEFFERSON PARK IN CLEVELAND, OHIO ON THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER, 2017


Wednesday, June 21 – was officially the first day of Summer, 2017.


It was not very hot – the high temperature recorded was a pleasant 76º F, and surprisingly it turned out to be a sunny day.


It sure was a long day and cast very long shadows as the attached photographs show,


The sun rose at 5:53 a.m. and set at 9:04 p.m. giving us a 15-hour and 11 min. long day.


Expect the days to definitely get shorter – and hotter too before our part of planet Earth starts to cool off.


The shortest day will occur on December 21, 2017 -- the official start of Winter -- when we will have a 9-hour and 10-min. long day.


Then the days will start getting longer – and then shorter again -- in an endless dance in a mysterious Universe.


Enjoy the Summer!
