The summer solstice is in a few days, and Stonehenge is closed because of COVID-19. But this year they’re going to stream the sunrise coming up over the mythical Stonehenge rocks in Wiltshire, southwestern England, so all you pagans and druids can totally tune in and watch it live.

The historic first-ever livestream of the summer solstice is this Saturday, June 20, at 8 p.m. Pacific time on the Facebook Live link below. Yes, that’s a Saturday night here, but Stonehenge is 8 hours ahead of us, and that’s 5 a.m. for them the way the time zones shake out.

You may not realize that the in-person gathering at Stonehenge is a pretty big deal in the pagan community, and usually about 10,000 people show up on the morning of the solstice at Stonehenge. “We know how special this occasion is to so many of you, and we’ll be livestreaming it for free online,” says English Heritage, the organization that manages Stonehenge.

This Saturday’s summer solstice is of course the longest day of the year. The actual moment of the solstice will be shortly after the sunrise livestream, and will occur at 9:44 p.m. Saturday night.
