I used to regularly go to Stonehenge, both winter and summer. To celebrate with others the cosmic events of the solstice. But, in recent years, English Heritage, and other agencies, have created ‘managed access events’ that I don’t feel I have anything in common with. They are not the gatherings they were.
Solstice happens everywhere, and I can still observe it, in my own quiet ways …… wherever I am.
If the science of what is going on is important to you, one of the best sites I’ve found in explaination is here:
Useful also for the precise timings of this and other cosmic events.
Anyway, HAPPY SOLISTICE all. A far more significant event than all this Christmas stuff.
This year, the cusp of the Winter Solstice actually occurs at 06:08 22nd December
