2010 Summer Solstice Celebration at Southface
Tonight I went to the Summer Solstice celebration at the Southface Energy Institute in downtown Atlanta. According to Wikipedia, the Summer Solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is most inclined towards the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. It is the day of the year with the longest period of daylight.
They were serving ice cream made from goats milk and were churning solar ice cream. By the time I left they hadn’t served up the solar ice cream, but I’m sure it was great.
It’s always fun hanging out at Southface and talking with all of the employees, trainers and interns. Southface is a hotspot for super smart people that are all working to improve the performance and standards of today’s buildings. Here are some pictures from the event
