ICYMI: Melbhenge served us this summer's best sunset

Delima Shanti

In case you missed it earlier this week, at exactly 8.27pm on Wednesday night, Melbourne CBD served us a glorious sunset that's been dubbed Melbhenge. This happens around twice a year, when the sun sets directly between the CBD's skyscrapers, not unlike the phenomenon that happens at Stonehenge when the sun sets between the prehistoric monoliths. Some lucky Melburnians caught a glimpse of this summer's most dramatic sunset.

Missed this week's Melbhenge? The next ones this year will be at the following dates: sunset on November 3, and sunrise on May 5 and August 8. If you want to catch the next Melbhenge, the best spot to watch the sun go down will be anywhere close to or along Spring Street, where you can see the light stream down Collins, Bourke and Lonsdale streets.
