Everyone knows about Manhattanhenge, a truly magnificent visual spectacle that takes place right before the summer solstice, when the sun sets level with the streets of New York City.

But did you know that there is also a so-called “reverse Manhattanhenge” that occurs during the colder months? The winter version of the celestial phenomenon is essentially an inverted version that appears in the sky during sunrise hours, according to Time out.

This year's inverted Manhattanhenge is scheduled to appear at 6:59 a.m. on Wednesday, November 29th. You have some time to prepare for tomorrow's sunrise, so here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Which streets are the best to see reverse Manhattanhenge?

Given that the only difference between a regular Manhattanhenge and a reverse Manhattanhenge is the time of day at which the event occurs, it follows that the best streets for viewing the event are the same:

  • 57th Street in Manhattan,
  • 42th Street in Manhattan,
  • 34th Street in Manhattan,
  • 23th Street in Manhattan,
  • 14th Street in Manhattan,
  • Tudor City Overpass in Manhattan,
  • Hunters Point South Park in Long Island City.

What else do you need to keep in mind if you want to see reverse Manhattanhenge in all its glory? As always when it comes to celestial events, you should head out as early as possible.

On the subject: Manhattanhenge is not only a New York phenomenon: what other cities have their own -henges

The event will attract crowds of people despite such an early hour, so finding an unobstructed viewing spot is essential to ensure you experience the show in all its glory.

Can't wake up so early? Then mark your calendar for January 11th, when the next installment of this delicious phenomenon is expected.
