Around 8000 people turned up at Stonehenge and another approx. 154,000 people tuned-in from across the world to watch the sunset and sunrise on our live stream.

A beautiful dawn followed a slightly misty sunrise was greeted with drumming, chanting and cheering from all those who came to Stonehenge to celebrate this important point in the calendar. Stonehenge continues to captivate and to bring people together to celebrate the seasons, just as it has done for thousands of years.

Stonehenge :

A prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, England. It consists of a ring of standing stones, each weighing around 25 tons. In fact it is believed to have been erected around 2500 BC.    As such the site has been studied and speculated upon for centuries, with many different theories about its purpose and significance.

While there is no definitive answer as to why Stonehenge was built.   Indeed it is widely believed to have had some kind of religious or ceremonial significance to the people who built it. Some theories suggest that it was used for astronomical observation. Maybe it was a kind of early calendar?  However others suggest that it was a place for healing or for conducting rituals related to death and burial.

Despite its age and mysterious origins, Stonehenge remains one of the most remarkable and awe-inspiring structures in the world.   Renown for drawing visitors from across the globe and inspiring countless artists, writers, and explorers throughout the ages.

Our Sun


The incredible and awe-inspiring sun.  Our bright and fiery celestial body that illuminates and warms our planet, is actually a star!  Yes, you heard it right, a star! 

This fact is absolutely astounding and mind-boggling, especially when we consider the immense size and power of our sun compared to the other stars in our galaxy.

It’s truly remarkable to think that the blazing orb we see every day is just one of the hundreds of billions of stars in the vast universe.  Yet, it’s the only star that sustains the fragile ecosystems on earth and enables life to thrive. 

We owe so much to this remarkable star! Consequently without its unwavering presence and life-giving energy, our world would be a very different place indeed. 

The sun is simply incredible!
