Celebrating Summer Solstice At Stonehenge

Solstice revellers celebrate the arrival of the midsummer sunrise at the megalithic monument of Stonehenge on June 21, 2012 near Salisbury, England. Cloudy skies and a Met Office weather warning for heavy rain meant the numbers of revellers who annually gather at the 5,000 year old stone circle to see the sunrise on the Summer Solstice was down on previous years. The solstice sunrise marks the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
