A Beautiful Sunrise Solstice Over Stonehenge (2008)

Astronomy Picture of the Day recently featured a beautiful photo of a sunrise solstice taken over Stonehenge in 2008 by photographer Max Alexander.

The featured image was taken during the week of the 2008 summer solstice at Stonehenge in United Kingdom, and captures a picturesque sunrise involving fog, trees, clouds, stones placed about 4,500 years ago, and a 4.5 billion year old large glowing orb. Even given the precession of the Earth’s rotational axis over the millennia, the Sun continues to rise over Stonehenge in an astronomically significant way.
