You’ve probably heard about it on your favourite radio show, saw someone’s photo on Facebook, or noticed the hashtag #torontohenge on Instagram. There were many photos taken of the cityscape on Tuesday, October 25th in Toronto due this perfect photo op phenomenon called, Torontohenge.
So what is the Torontohenge?
The Torontohenge happens twice a year as the sun aligns perfectly with the city’s east-west street grid. This creates the perfect sunset in the streets of Toronto for everyone to see! It’s a phenomenon that happens in certain large cities at different times of the year, depending on where the city’s east-west gridlines sit. This year on Tuesday, October 25th, the sun was perfect and the sky was clear in “The Six”!
