According to astronomers, the Sun moves from the northern hemisphere to the Tropic of Cancer crossing the middle of India . This is the reason that on this day the sun’s rays fall on the earth for a longer time. On this day the sunlight falls on the earth for about 15 to 16 hours. This is the reason why June 21 is the longest day of the year. This event is called the Summer Solstice. Summer Solstice is celebrated between 20 and 23 June. Talking about shadow disappearance, when the Sun is right above the Tropic of Cancer , then the shadow disappears for a few moments.
