Summer officially arrives on Thursday night! The "Summer Solstice" happens at 10:04pm Arizona time on Thursday night, marking the highest sun angle and the greatest length of daylight (time between sunrise and sunset) of the year. Although it will be dark when it officially happens, the days around the solstice pretty much represent a similar sun angle and length of day.
