The best shots from this month's beautiful Torontohenge (PHOTOS)

Feb 19 2019, 6:06 pm

Sunset chasers were in for a treat over the weekend, as Torontohenge descended on the city.

For those who have yet to experience the sight before, Torontohenge takes place on certain days of the year when the sun’s position in the sky lines up perfectly with certain streets in Toronto as it sets, resulting in a spectacular urban sunset.

Torontohenge, which is a reference to Stonehenge, was first made popular with Manhattanhenge, and only happens twice a year in Toronto (four times if you include sunrise), and this is the first of 2019.

Torontohenge began on February 15, and the great photo ops will continue for another few days, depending on the weather.

Below is a selection of the best shots of Torontohenge shared on social media so far.

And don’t worry if you missed this opportunity as there are still three other chances to see Torontohenge this year.

The next Torontohenges will take place in April, August, and October.
