Many flock to sacred sites around the world to be part of this magical moment.
The above photo's were taken in Ireland at Newgrange and Knowth in 2009 on our last visit.
The history of these places are awe-inspiring just as the re-construction is controversial. You can Google to read about all the good factual bits on Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth, and the Hill of Tara.
There are many others throughout Ireland and Europe for that matter that are just as important, yet, tourist do not flock to them.
Queen Maeve's Henge
Hill of Uisneach
The Witch's Chair
Many more that the board of tourism doesn't promote.
I can assure you that they were visited by many this Solstice morning - and a magical one at that with the Lunar Eclipse taking place as well.
Here's to a magical day....
