Thousands Flock to Stonehenge for Summer Solstice Celebration
Visitors celebrate summer solstice and the dawn of the longest day of the year at Stonehenge on June 21, 2019 in Amesbury, England. Visitors and modern day druids gather at the 5,000 year old stone circle in Wiltshire to see the sunrise on the Summer Solstice dawn in a tradition dating back thousands of years. The solstice sunrise marks the start of the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
The ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is a World Heritage Site erected between approximately 3000 B.C. and 1600 B.C. and despite years of research the reason behind its construction remains a mystery. The summer solstice in the northern hemisphere occurs annually on June 21 and is the time at which the sun is at its northernmost point in the sky.
