The Google logo lords have done it again – with a freaky funky logo designed by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and dedicated to today’s summer solstice, aka the longest day of the year.

That’s right folks, it’s all downhill from here as tomorrow brings with the start of less daylight and the all-too-fast march towards yet another winter. Shoot me.

But rejoice! Today, the sun will be at its highest point for the year at 1:16PM EST. Bask in the warmth, point your arms toward the heavens and remember this moment. You’ll need it come January.

Update: Twitter user @JosiMill alerted us to the fact that in the Southern Hemisphere, Google has given them a “trippy” winter solstice logo. Awesome!
