Solstice!

Today (June 21) is the solstice, marking the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. In celebration, here is a video that shows the apparent path of the Sun across the sky in New York State at different times of the year. Our latitude in Chicago is similar, so a video shot here would look about the same. The seasonal variation is due to the axial tilt of the Earth.
