Summer Solstice Performance at the San Antonio International Airport
Once a year, at 2pm on the Summer Solstice, the lighted grids of Christopher Janney’s “Passing Light” solar sculpture align with the painted grids on the floor for less than a minute as the Sun passes directly overhead.
The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, respectively, in the sense that the length of time elapsed between Sunrise and Sunset on this day is a maximum duration for the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, the longest day of the year (near June 20/22) is when the Sun is farthest North. In the Southern Hemisphere, winter and summer solstices are exchanged. The Summer Solstice marks the first day of the season of summer.
