Sunrise during Summer Solstice Gathering, Stonehenge, England

The rising of the Sun over the Heelstone is the climax of the Summer Solstice celebration at Stonehenge. On June 21, 2001, celebrants were able to witness the sun rise over the Heelstone, a rarity because of limited access and generally cloudy conditions at the site.
