NEW YORK -- New Yorkers Friday evening were in the midst of the second and final pair of sunsets of the year that line up with Manhattan's cross streets, known as Manhattanhenge.
CBS New York station WCBS-TV reports one Manhattanhenge sunset occurred at 8:24 p.m. Friday, and another will occur at 8:25 p.m. Saturday.
The phenomenon - also known as the Manhattan Solstice - occurs when the setting sun aligns precisely with the Manhattan street grid, creating a radiant glow of light.
The best view is on the wider crosstown streets, such as 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th streets.
The term Manhattanhenge was coined by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, a native New Yorker.
