Manhattanhenge Marching

On this blog I have featured Manhattanhenge many times. How the New York City cross street grid perfectly frames the rising or setting sun four times a year because of the axial tilt of the earth. How the great Neil DeGrasse Tyson named it as a hat tip to the great Stonehenge of antiquity.

The setting sun today, Saturday, June 13, 2020 will get in the act today sometime between 8 pm and 8:30 pm. This year will have a special feature. If you catch it correctly you may be able to frame a march or demonstration silhouetted against the sun thanks to the righteous protests happening in the Big Apple. So, all you shutterbugs hanging out in Manhattan this evening, get your shot. And send me a copy. Should be epic!
