Stonehenge is commonly known as a collection of large stones in Wiltshire, England, but even after much research and investigation, we still don’t know who built it, when it was built, or exactly what it was used for. We speculate that it could have been used as a burial ground or even an astronomical observatory. What is particularly interesting about this sight is its alignment with the summer and winter solstices. As seen in this Stonehenge reconstruction, as the sun sets rises on the summer solstice and sets on the winter solstice, the sun is perfectly aligned with opposite sides of the monument. It is commonly believed that the monument was built between 3000 and 2000BCE, which leads us to wonder how important astronomical observations were to ancient societies. Another interesting potential use for Stonehenge is to predict eclipses. Some questions that may spur from these potential uses are: Why did the creators of Stonehenge align it with the path of the sun? Why would they want to predict the timing of eclipses?
