Brace yourselves, Manhattanhenge is coming!

Brace yourselves, Manhattanhenge is coming!

Manhattanhenge 2015 will occur this weekend. For those of you in the know, skip to the bottom of this post for the dates and times. For everyone else, prepare for an incredible and seldom occurring spectacle. 

Manhattanhenge is a term coined by none other than the legendary and prolific scientist and personality, Neil Degrasse Tyson. The term Manhattanhenge pays homage to Stonehenge in the UK and describes a bi-annual phenomenon where the sunset aligns perfectly with Manhattan's grid. Shortly after 8 PM on Friday, May 29th and Saturday, May 30th, the sun will set between the buildings and illuminate every cross street. Traffic will undoubtedly be halted due to swarms of people standing in the middle of the street attempting to capture the perfect instagram shot. 

Wondering where to get the best view of this phenomenon?

Station yourself on the major cross streets -- 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, and 57th -- and travel as far east as you can without losing sight of New Jersey.

Half Sun:

Friday, May 29 8:12 P.M. EDT

Monday, July 13 8:21 P.M. EDT

Full Sun:

Saturday, May 30 8:12 P.M. EDT

Sunday, July 12 8:20 P.M. EDT
