SOLSTICE IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER



****Time to celebrate with the seasons, we are a week away and always a good event to plan some time in nature, time with friends or just time for you to let the tiger out..... Hope you enjoy

A solstice is an astronomical event that happens twice each year, when the tilt of the Earth's axis is most inclined toward or away from the Sun, causing the Sun's apparent position in the sky to reach its northernmost or southernmost extreme. The name is derived from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still), because at the solstices, the Sun stands still in declination; that is, the apparent movement of the Sun's path north or south comes to a stop before reversing direction.
