SOLSTICE DAY


Welcome to the Longest Day of the Year, June 21st.

The summer solstice occurs exactly when the Earth's axial tilt is most inclined towards the sun at its maximum of 23° 26'...or
simply, it's the longest day of the year with the most sunlight hours.

So go celebrate!

at Stonehenge!

Stonehenge is the world's most famous monolithic example of a celestially aligned astronomical monument, however there are examples of this phenomenon everywhere in the ancient world.

The Anasazi pueblos in Arizona for example incorporate many solstice features. And in Bolivia much of Tiwanaku is aligned with both winter and summer solstices.

The entire field of archeoastronomy is a joyous journey into the astronomically aligned past which we are proud to highlight now and then at The Omni Report.
