"Summer Solstice was exactly centered between Jewish religious and civil calendars"

Summer Solstice 20 June 2012 minus 88 days was 24 March 2012 (1 Nisan 5772 start of the Jewish religious year).
Summer Solstice 20 June 2012 plus 88 days will be 16 September 2012 (29 Elul end of civil year 5772 and 1 Tishrei start of the civil year 5773).
This is 'perfect symmetry' between the two Jewish calendars and the position of the Earth at its longest day.
I believe this is another very significant pointer to Rosh Hashanah 5773.
