Thousands gathered at the prehistoric ring of standing stones to mark the longest day of the year, on June 21st, and watch the sun rise.
The summer solstice, for the northern hemisphere, is when the sun reaches its northernmost point in the sky. The further north you go, the longer the day, with daylight lasting 19 hours and 21 minutes in Anchorage, Alaska, and the sun never setting in Prudhoe Bay in far north Alaska.
The stones are positioned to align with the sunrise on the two annual solstices, summer and winter.

It is believed that solstices have been celebrated at Stonehenge for thousands of years.
