In the northern hemisphere we have just experienced the Summer Solstice. Which is midsummer, the longest day, and when the pole is pitched towards the Sun.
Our ancestors used to mark the Summer Solstice, as it was seen as an important date in the calendar. And now, even though we know why it happens, people still mark the occasion.
This video shows the sun setting and then rising again over Stonehenge in England. People gather from around the world to experience Summer Solstice at Stonehenge.
People have been gathering at Stonehenge for centuries, and as long as we protect this important monument, people will continue to do so for centuries to come.
