Tourists can’t experience next month’s summer solstice at Stonehenge in person, but in 2020, more people will be able to view the event than ever before. As Matador Network reports, the English Heritage organization will livestream the spectacle for the first time in the ancient landmark’s history.
The first day of summer is a very important occasion at Stonehenge. When the Sun appears over the horizon on the solstice, it appears to line up perfectly with the massive stone structure. This has led some to believe that Stonehenge played an important role in druid solstice celebrations when it was erected between 3500 and 5000 years ago.
Under normal circumstances, thousands of people make a pilgrimage to the site at the end of June to witness the event. This year, English Heritage, which manages the landmark, is asking people to stay home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization hopes to make up for this by streaming the solstice at Stonehenge live on social media.
To watch the special sunrise live from home, head to English Heritage’s Facebook page the morning of June 21 (or, if you’re tuning in from the U.S., the evening of June 20). The sun rises at Stonehenge at approximately 4:52 a.m. local time, so check to see when that is in your area to watch the event live. The page will also stream sunset on Saturday, June 20, at 9:26 p.m. local time.

I hate to say it, but when I discovered some local residents had tried to sell their government-issued free reusable masks online for HK$200 (US$25) each, I wasn’t surprised. In fact, I thought about how sad it was for someone to put another’s health at risk in return for such a meagre profit. The masks are part of the government’s HK$320 million bid to combat Covid-19 by providing residents basic protection, especially those who can’t afford…
