    Must-See Pics, Time Lapse of "Manhattanhenge"

    Storified by Accu Weather · Fri, Jul 13 2012 04:05:38

    "Manhattanhenge" occurs when the sun is perfectly aligned with the buildings of Manhattan, creating an incredible sunset. The term "Manhattanhenge" is due to the sundial appearance of the buildings' shadows and the similarity to Stonehenge.
