The solstice marks a position in the sky for the Sun. There are two a year and they indicate the furthest points of the tilt of the Earth in relationship to the Sun. In the Summer it is the closest and Winter is the farthest.

Technically, the solstices are considered to be the beginning of Summer and Winter.

The solstices occur within about a day either way of June 21 and December 22.

Which one starts Summer and which one starts Winter depends on whether you're

observing the seasons in the Earth's northern or southern Hemisphere.
