Solstice


The Earth will spin
Sun, Moon rise and fall
As do the tides

People dance as they celebrate the summer solstice shortly after 04:52 am at the Stonehenge monument, England, Monday, June 21, 2010. Druids, pagans and partygoers crammed into the mystic stone circle to cheer, bang drums and shake tambourines in an effort to greet the sun on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, the summer solstice. Stonehenge, on the Salisbury Plain about 140 kilometers (90 miles) southwest of London, was built over three phases between 3000 B.C. and 1600 B.C. It is one of Britain's most popular tourist attractions; more than 750,000 people visit every year.
