The summer solstice begins the summer season on Tuesday. With Tuesday scheduled to have the longest period of daylight this year, the sun will rise at 5:44 a.m. and set at 8:37 p.m. The actual summer solstice, though, is only a brief period of time when the sun is at its northernmost point. That will occur at 12:16 p.m. Tuesday.
