This 9-minute video is a recording of the 2007 Winter Solstice event at Newgrange neolithic monument in Ireland. On the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, the passage and chamber of Newgrange are illuminated by the winter solstice sunrise. A shaft of sunlight shines through the roof box over the entrance and penetrates the passage to light up the chamber. The dramatic event lasts for 17 minutes at dawn on the Winter Solstice and for a few mornings either side of the Winter Solstice.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
