Current Events | Manhattanhenge

Twice a year, the setting sun aligns perfectly with the grid of New York City, illuminating the city's streets in a rare and beautiful light. Fondly known as Manhattanhenge, its second appearance of the year can be seen this weekend, Friday (July 12th) and Saturday (July 13th). If you're in Manhattan, don't forget to stop and take a look down any crosstown street around 8:20pm.

If you'd like to know more about this unique urban phenomenon (you rock), Neil deGrasse Tyson and the American Museum of Natural History have you covered.
