Manhattan Solstice

Photograph by Robinson McClellan, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

Celebrating a "Manhattan Solstice"—when Manhattan's street grid lines up with the setting sun—in front of the American Museum of Natural History. On this day, New York City's vast edifice becomes "Manhattanhenge‚" dedicated to sun worship!
