Toronto's best sunset of the year will happen this week (PHOTOS)

Oct 23 2017, 3:55 pm

Make sure you’re on Toronto’s streets at 6:18 pm this Wednesday.

And have your phone ready. Oh, and face west.

‘Cause on October 25 it’s Torontohenge and you don’t want to miss the spectacular sunset that’s going to take place in our city. Thanks to the grid that is the city of Toronto’s streets, Wednesday’s sun will set perfectly down the middle of Toronto’s east-west streets, resulting in a spectacular urban sunset.

Torontohenge, a reference to Stonehenge that was first made popular with Manhattanhenge, only happens twice a year in Toronto (four times if you include sunrise), and this is the last of 2017.

Despite the weather forecast showing rain for Wednesday evening, it’s definitely worth it to head outside and try to catch a glimpse of the incredible sight.

But in the case Wednesday ends up being stormy, Torontohenge will be slightly visible tonight and tomorrow when the skies are clear.

So like we said, get out there and bring your camera/phone if you want to capture the best urban sunset of the year. And check out Manhattanhenge for some worthy inspiration.
