The universe's answer to broadcasting's "seven second delay" is aphelion and perihelion.

The sun is closest to Earth about two weeks after the winter solstice in December (perihelion) and furthest from the earth about two weeks after the summer solstice.

This year, aphelion will be July 4th.

Plus bird families, turtle families, frog families ... and the joys of a walk in the fog, this morning on Backyard Almanac.

And here's some Phenology phenology: what we were talking about last year at this time:

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
