That's because the moment will be broadcast live through the park social networks.
"We have consulted extensively on whether we could safely proceed and would love to host the event as usual, but unfortunately in the end we feel we have no choice but to cancel," Stonehenge director Nichola Tasker told the network. news The Telegraph.
The broadcast will show the sunrise behind the symbolic Pedra do Calcanhar, the former entrance to the Círculo de Pedra, on June 21.
In addition, high-resolution images and drone footage will also be available that can be accessed later. Historians and experts will also bring information about the symbolism and mysteries of the place.
