According to NJ.com, the solstice, marking the official start of summer, occurs at 6:34 p.m. today on the East Coast, and will be followed by an unusual “strawberry moon,” or full moon. Meantime, the day will offer plentiful sunshine and temperatures peaking at a summery 84 degrees, says the Weather Underground. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
