Due to the situation we are in, tourists can’t experience in person the summer solstice that’s happening next month at Stonehenge. But, there’s a bright side to this. This year, more people than ever will be able to experience seeing the summer solstice as the spectacle will be livestreamed by the English Heritage organization. This marks the first time in the landmark’s history that such a thing will occur.
Stonehenge is an extremely beautiful site and during the first day of summer, a very important occasion takes place there. On that day, the Sun appears over the horizon on the solstice and the view is absolutely breathtaking with the Sun lining up perfectly with the huge stones there.
During the other summer, people would make a pilgrimage to the site to see the beautiful solstice. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people don’t have the opportunity to go there. However, the English Heritage has come up with an excellent idea by streaming the solstice at Stonehenge live on social media.
If you want to witness this special sunrise, make sure to visit the English Heritage’s Facebook page in the morning of June 21 when the sun will rise at around 4:52 a.m. local time
Once you’ve witnessed that, come back and let us know what you think!
