Longest summer so far of the 21st century started this morning at 07.04hrs
21 June 2013 @ 11:41

TODAY (Friday) sees the start of the longest summer in Spain in many years, having officially began at 07.04hrs Spanish tier and continuing until September 22.

This means summer 2013 will last for a full 93 days and 15 hours, giving an excellent boost to tourism as sunseekers have longer than ever to enjoy their holidays in Spain.

The so-called longest day of the year – with 15 hours and three minutes of daylight in Madrid, compared to the shortest day which has just nine hours and 17 minutes, and is normally on December 21 – is never on the same date ever year, says the National Geographic Institute (IGN).
