WATCH: New Yorkers treated to 'reverse Manhattanhenge' sunrise


Published in Weird News

(UPI) New Yorkers were treated to an annual spectacle Wednesday morning known as "reverse Manhattanhenge," when the sunrise aligns with the borough's street grid.

The reverse Manhattanhenge began at 6:59 a.m. Wednesday and lasted for several minutes as the sun rose over the city.

The event is known as "reverse Manhattanhenge," as a similar event, known as Manhattanhenge, takes place in the summer when the sunset aligns with the street grid.


Reverse Manhattanhenge happens twice a year, with the next one projected to take place on the morning of Jan. 11.
