Summer Solstice | Explore 24 solar terms along the Tropic of Cancer

Today (June 21) marks the beginning of Summer Solstice.

Summer Solstice (Chinese: 夏至) is the 10th solar term of the year. On the Summer Solstice itself, the sun reaches the celestial longitude of 90 degrees and shines directly over the Tropic of Cancer, therefore it has the longest daylight in the whole year in the northern hemisphere.

Around Summer Solstice is also graduation season. Four years in college can give young people an impression that it's a long time. However, compared with the whole of life, it's just a short period. It's like the day of Summer Solstice, when the daylight is so long that we would make the mistake of thinking there is still time for us to play.

Nonetheless, the summer will end, graduation means separation, but we have many more summers in our life to come. One day, we will, again, meet and sing our songs together.
