The Year’s Longest Day
The Summer Solstice is the day with the longest period of sunlight. Notice how the Sun appears highest in the sky at the solstice; its rays strike Earth at a more direct angle, causing the efficient warming we call summer. The June solstice occurs on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at 10:58 A.M. EDT.
Celebrating the Solstice
1. Go strawberry picking. Enjoy a big bowl of strawberries and cream on the solstice.

If the bill is passed, we would begin to experience later sunsets and sunrises throughout the winter starting in 2024.
So, what does this mean for the residents of Utah?
Right now, the latest sunrise in our area is around 7:51 a.m. in early January. The new sunrise would be an hour later at 8:51 a.m. Relying on the sun as your alarm clock may no longer be your best bet.
Currently, the earliest sunset in our area is around 4:59 p.m. in December each year. The new sunset would be an hour later, at 5:59 p.m. The sun would set on Christmas Eve at 6:06 p.m.
Despite the change, the spring, summer, and majority of fall sunrises and sunsets would remain the same.
