Tonight is the last chance to see ‘Manhattanhenge’ this year

The second (and final) pair of Manhattanhenge sunsets of the year will be Friday at 8:24 p.m. and Saturday at 8:25 p.m. in New York City.

The phenomenon occurs « 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, » writes Neil deGrasse Tyson of the American Museum of Natural History and host of the TV show Cosmos.

Folks looking down the streets Friday evening will see a full sun just above the horizon, while Saturday’s viewing will be a half-sun at the horizon.
