Summer solstice



Continuing with our celebration of the coming Summer Solstice, which will occur precisely at 1:46 am Sunday morning, Derrick and Dave discuss our incredible and all powerful star, the sun. The Summer Solstice signifies when the sun reaches the greatest elevation over the southern horizon. What does this mean for the dog days of summer? It seems we just begun the summer months, but will the days begin to get shorter? Also find out how powerful our sun truly is and if it will one day destroy man kind.
