Happy summer solstice day!  At our house, today spans 15 hours and 14 minutes between the sun’s rise and set, and the solstice occurs at 1:16 in the afternoon.  Add a buffer for twilight on either end, we can expect 2.15 times as much light as dark.  Coincidence, or conspiracy?

(Also, the event always reminds me of the other Solstice, mentioned here in Wernick & Aarsvold.)
