Summer begins Wednesday

The four seasons are determined by the changing sunlight, which changes while the Earth tilts its axis as it orbits the Sun. This year’s summer officially begins Wednesday. The summer solstice — the longest day of the year — in the Northern Hemisphere is when the sun reaches the northernmost point in the sky. After Wednesday, the days will become gradually shorter. The last day of summer will be Sept. 21
