Rocket Summer: Solstice In the Manhattan Sky
The Manhattan sky is magical the week of the Summer Solstice. The setting sun suspends in the air hitting clouds with strange light like no other time of the year. It reminds me of the sky's description in The Martian Chronicles, by Ray Bradbury. Look up tonight and over the next few days, you're in for a treat. Pictures below are Upper Eastside (camera) and Astor Place (cell phone, camera battery died). I tie the solstice to the end of school and "Don't Worry Baby," to the beginning of summer.
