Today at around 21 UTC, the sun moves out of Taurus the Bull and into Gemini the Twins. http://bit.ly/2MMk727 Note that we're talking about the boundaries of astronomical constellations – not astrological signs - of the zodiac.

Happy solstice friends! Peter Lowenstein captured the morning sun shining through a poinsettia flower at the instant of solstice in Mutare, Zimbabwe. Peter mentioned that over the last 24 hours the larger pair of flowers have almost quadrupled in size. Thanks Peter!
