Summer Solstice at Stonehenge

Image 1 of 13


The sun rises behind the Stonehenge monument in England, during the summer solstice shortly after 4:52 a.m., on June 21. Thousands of New Agers and neo-pagans danced and whooped in delight Monday as a bright early morning sun rose above the ancient stone circle of Stonehenge, marking the summer solstice. About 20,000 people crowded the prehistoric site on Salisbury Plain, southern England.
