Summer officially arrived in New Brunswick today at 1:24am. 

This is the longest day of the year at 15 hours and 46 minutes in Greater Moncton. 

The sun has reached its northernmost point over the Tropic of Cancer and now begins moving southward which will gradually shorten days. 

The solstice is celebrated in Stonehenge, England where the U.K. Met Office says a record high today of 32.3 C near Gatwick Airport is the warmest first day of summer ever.
