Stonehenge will livestream its summer solstice celebration for the first time ever

Matador Network:

Just because Stonehenge is thousands of years old doesn’t mean it can’t adapt to the virtual age.

The ancient, mystical site typically hosts one of the world’s most popular summer solstice celebrations, attracting thousands of people, including the druid and pagan community, on the longest day of the year to watch the sun rise behind the Heel Stone.

This year, however, the usual celebration won’t be possible. The English Heritage organization, which manages Stonehenge, is asking people not to visit the site, and is instead offering a livestream of the sunrise.

In case you’re wondering, The Photographer’s Ephemeris says the Stonehenge sunrise on Sunday morning, June 21 will be at 5:36 AM local time. Set your alarm clock accordingly.
