Birminghamhenge?

29 May 2008

Anyone know what day of the year our city’s downtown grid aligns with the setting sun like New York’s rendition of Stonehenge, aka “Manhattenhenge“??  Of course, our streets don’t follow a true north/south grid like New York’s — this is due to the fact that OUR streets were aligned with the railroad tracks (and Red Mountain, of course).

Maybe I need a star chart, a protractor, or maybe it’s just not geometrically possible because the angle is too severe.   ;^)
