manhattanhenge

The only thing that can drag me away from polishing my revision of book three today is Manhattanhenge.  That’s where the sunset will be perfectly framed at the western end of each street running east to west.  The setting sun will illuminate every single cross-street in Manhattan for the last 15 minutes of daylight.  So tonight I will go observe Reason #824 of why I heart NY.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, explains the phenomenon.
