What is the Solstice?
Solstice is derived from the Latin words sol, meaning "sun," and
sistere, meaning "to stand still." As the days become increasingly
longer, the sun climbs higher and higher in the sky until it appears to
stand still. Once
the sun has reached its climax at the summer solstice, it will begin to
descend as the days become increasingly shorter in the Northern
Hemisphere until the winter solstice. In the northernmost parts of
Finland and Norway, the sun won't set for months.
