KARACHI – The city will have 14-hour-long day on the summer solstice that occurs every year between June 20 and June 22 in the Northern Hemisphere.

“It is the longest day of sunlight for places in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest day for cities in the Southern Hemisphere,” said University of Karachi Institute of Space and Planetary Astrophysics Director Dr Javed Iqbal while sharing his views about the longest day that is likely to be witnessed today in Pakistan.

Another interesting fact is that the distance between the earth and sun is maximum on the summer solstice which is vice verse for the winter solstice (Dec 21-22) ie, the distance between the earth and sun is minimum and so shortest day in Northern Hemisphere.
