Watch the Winter Solstice Livestreams
From Newgrange and Stonehenge
If you're as fascinated with the great stoneworks of our ancestors as I am, you might enjoy watching the sunrise LIVE at Newgrange (on the 21st) and Stonehenge (on the 22nd). I visited both of these UNESCO World Heritatge sites on my last trip to the Republic of Ireland and the U.K. in 2021. Breathtaking!
The Winter Solstice is an astronomical phenomenon that marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, the Winter Solstice occurs on 21 or 22 December, when the sun shines directly over the tropic of Capricorn. At sunrise on the shortest day of the year, for 17 minutes, direct sunlight can enter the Newgrange monument, not through the doorway, but through the specially contrived small opening above the entrance known as the ‘roof box’, to illuminate the Chamber.
For Newgrange: The live stream will be available from 08:40 UTC, Thursday 21 December. Click HERE.
Marking the passage of time was important to many ancient cultures. For the people of Stonehenge who were farmers, growing crops and tending herds of animals, knowing when the seasons were changing was important. Winter might have been a time of fear as the days grew shorter and colder. People must have longed for the return of light and warmth. Marking this yearly cycle may have been one of the reasons that Neolithic people constructed Stonehenge – a monument aligned to the movements of the sun.
For Stonehenge: The stream begins at 07:00 UTC, Friday 22 December, with sunrise occurring at 08:09 UTC.
