Manhattanhenge

Ready your cameras, photogs: Manhattanhenge returns to New York today. For the unfamiliar, the event marks the date when "the setting sun aligns precisely with the Manhattan street grid, creating a radiant glow of light across Manhattan's brick and steel canyons, simultaneously illuminating both the north and south sides of every cross street of the borough's grid." The half sun will be on the grid at precisely 8:17 this evening, and tomorrow, the full sun will align with the streets at 8:16 p.m. [Hayden Planetarium]
