Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice sunrise over Stowes Hill

Today marks the first day of summer. It is the longest day and shortest night of the year, when the sun is at the highest in the sky.

As I mentioned last week our Project Officer, Iain Rowe, formed a party to watch the sunrise over Stowes Hill from Craddock Moor Stone Circle. As the clouds were not in their favour they moved to a different spot were they joined the Roseland Observatory group led by Brain Sheen. As you can see from Iain’s photo they were not disappointed and enjoyed a fantastic start to this very special day.
