Answer :

During solstice, the tilt of the earth's axis is pointed most directly towards or away from the sun. The summer solstice for the northern hemisphere occurs within a few days of June 21 every year. It is on this day that the position of the sun in the sky at noon is at its highest altitude of the year. The position of the sun at the sunrise and sunset is farthest on this day. Hence on 21 June, the sun appears at the highest in the sky.
