It has been revealed in a new report that in spite of the overcast skies and heavy rain overnight, several thousands of people gathered today at Stonehenge in the Northern Hemisphere.
As per the findings, the people were seeking to mark the Summer solstice, which defines the longest day of the year. However, cloud covers had made it difficult for like druids and pagans to view the sunrise at its maximum.
"At 4:52 am people were looking from left to right to try to see the sun and people had to resort to watches and mobile phones to mark the moment", said Will Walder, a reporter.
Before the solstice, a giant statue, made up of seven tonne steel, dubbed as Ancestor was also brought to the Stonehenge, says the report. The same 22ft (6.70m) figure would be moved to the Olympic torch event in Salisbury once the solstice is over.
While the revelers tried and put their best efforts to brave the rain and see the statue along with the solstice, a number of theft and alcohol-related cases somehow dampened people’s mood. It is being said that police made a total of 20 arrests and also raised warnings for using cannabis.
