Midsummer Solstice Sunrise at Stonehenge

Stonehenge; Midsummer Solstice Sunrise
'Seen from the centre, one side of its entrance at the north-east roughly defined the place on the horizon near where the sun rose at midsummer, climbing above the rugged outlier known as the heel stone.'  From 'Prehistoric Stone Circles'

 

Midsummer Solstice Sunrise.

Comparisons between Lundy Island and Stonehenge.

At Stonehenge 49.1 - 51.1 - stone 93 - stone 94, - centre - heel stone, - stone 92 - stone 91.
The highest point in South Wales, the  Brecon Beacons, lie on a bearing of 48.77. 
 
 
Equinox and Solstice
The points of intersection of the Ecliptic and the celestial equator  are called the nodes or more commonly the equinoxes. Currently the vernal, or spring, equinox occurs around the 21st of March. The autumnal equinox occurs around the 23rd of September. Midway between the equinoxes are the winter solstice around the 22nd of December and the summer solstice, the 21st of June. ( Solstice means 'sun stands still' )
Because the equator and the ecliptic rotate in opposite directions to each other the position of the equinoxes on the ecliptic moves about one degree every seventy years. ( It takes 25,868 years for the ecliptic and the celestial equator to return to the same relative positions). 

 

There are 2 known stone arrangements on Lundy marking this alignment ( SA1 and SA2 )
