Winter Solstice at Stonehenge

Sunset at Stonehenge

Sunday, 27 September 2009

Its well known that there is a connection between Stonehenge and sunrise and sunset on the longest and shortest days of the year. To celebrate this connection between the stones and the sky, in the International Year of Astronomy 2009, a special event has been organised by the Royal Astronomical Society together with English Heritage.

Events include; free talks and tours by leading archaeologists and astronomers, the “From Earth to the Universe” exhibition, an opportunity to view the sunset itself, and a chance to see the night sky from the stones (advance bookings only).
