Stonehenge Moonrise

By: Fred Espenak


Region: Europe

Site: Stonehenge - England


Stonehenge is one of the most famous ancient monuments in the world and has long been recognized as a site of astronomical importance and perhaps an ancient observatory designed about 5000 years ago in southern England. In this minute-long exposure the Moon rises behind the giant stones along with the stars of the Pleiades star cluster. Fred Espenak/
