A great photo opportunity will arise in Manhattan this evening as the sun lines up perfectly with the buildings at sunset.
The sunset is called "Manhattanhenge," due to the buildings shadows' similarity to Stonehenge.
Sunset will occur at 8:30 p.m. EDT Thursday July 12, 2012. However, the best viewing conditions for Manhattanhenge will be about an hour earlier, according to Expert Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity.
The weather will be perfect for viewing of the stunning sunset with partly cloudy skies, a visibility of 10 miles and comfortable temperatures in the mid-70s.
"Standing on 34th or 42nd street provides a particularly nice view, as the views include the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. It's a good idea to get to your spot 30 minutes early, so you can beat out the other sun worshippers," according to Life's Little Mysteries, a partner of AccuWeather.
