At Stonehenge

Summer Solstice

The Watchers of Stonehenge

People are drawn to Stonehenge for many reasons - especially when the sun speaks to them. As in ancient times, they pray to .... the sun ... invisible gods ... aliens. How primitive. You should be beyond this. Look at the image of the praying statue. Does it take you back to ancient rituals you read about and think, "That was then but we are far more advanced today." People observe holidays and rituals, then go back to their programmed lifestyles. If you celebrate holidays - has that changed your life? Earth customs have always been strange to me.

A seven tonne steel statue is to be dismantled and moved to Stonehenge for a second time. The 22ft (6.70m) figure, called Ancestor, was first installed at the ancient monument in 2010 but has since been at Solstice Park near Amesbury. Last year, creators Andy Rawlings and Michelle Topps failed to sell the statue on e-Bay. It will be at Stonehenge for the Summer Solstice before being moved to Salisbury for the Olympic torch event.

Each year, thousands gather at Stonehenge, the 5000-year-old stone circle in England, to see the sun rise on the summer solstice. For some it's sacred but for others its one of the largest summer kickoff parties on the planet.
