– From The Old Farmer’s Almanac:
“The summer solstice heralds the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The timing of the summer solstice depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point of the equator.
In 2016, summer begins with the solstice on June 20 at 6:24 p.m. EDT. [3:24pm PDT].”
– “For the first time in nearly 70 years , the Full Moon and Summer Solstice coincide on the same day.”
