Callanish Stone Circle, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, Scotland

This view of the stone circle is from the southwest looking northeast. Scholars such as A. Thom contend that the site and its alignments was designed for meticulous observations of the risings and settings of the sun, moon, and planets. The photo was taken June 9, 2001, around 8:30 p.m.
