The Sky This Week, 2011 June 7 – 14 — Naval Oceanography Portal

Due to the complex interplay between modern timekeeping and the elliptical nature of Earth’s orbit we’ll experience the year’s earliest sunrise on the 14th. …We won’t experience the latest sunset until the 28th… Sandwiched in between is the solstice itself, and it is on this day that we experience the longest duration of daylight for the year with the Sun above the horizon for 14 hours and 55 minutes. Summer is almost "officially" upon us!
