People dance on Stonehenge monument, southern England late Friday June 20, 2008 in anticipation of the mystical moment when the sun rises Saturday over the stones for the summer solstice. Beating drums and wearing rainbow cloaks, the revelers walked through light rain to talk, dance and meditate as they waited for Saturday's 4:58 a.m. sunrise, which starts the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Stonehenge, on the Salisbury Plain about 90 miles southwest of London, was built over three phases between 3,000 B.C. and 1,600 B.C. It is one of Britain's most popular tourist attractions; more than 750,000 people visit every year. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
