Stonehenge is situated on the edge of Salisbury Plain, the Landscape occupies a large, sparsely populated area ideal for stargazing.  These dark skies provide the perfect environment to see the stars in all their detail, so why not organise a night-time trip to see what you can discover? The National Trust mention Stonehenge as one of their top stargazing spots in the south west of England and it’s easy to see why. The timeless landscape surrounding Stonehenge is sparsely populated owing to the fact of its close proximity to Salisbury Plain and also due to Stonehenge being part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Keep an eye out for stargazing events organised by the National Trust and English Heritage here.

(WILTSHIRE) JUST IN: In a vision of celestial wonder, Jupiter, Saturn and Venus aligned above Stonehenge in Wiltshire after ten eight-second exposures were merged into this striking image #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.25: The scene, captured on Monday evening, quickly became an internet sensation, receiving more than 5,000 likes in less than an hour on the Stonehenge Dronescapes page.

#AceDailyNews says according to a MailOnline News Report: How three planets aligned over Stonehenge is shown in stunning image below …..Kindness & Love❤️ says isn’t creation wonderful and its just the Beginning Amen

The planets were captured by ten eight-second exposures, which were merged in one photo to reveal greater detail than can be seen by the naked eye.

Venus, bottom right, the brightest natural object in Earth’s sky after the moon, was also shone in the pink and red light.

The connection between Stonehenge and the stars has puzzled humanity for centuries.

How Stonehenge is the centre of the neo-pagan world

One regular group of visitors to Stonehenge since the mid-19th century has been the neo-pagans, including people who claim to have resurrected the ancient practices of the Celtic druids.

It is believed that Stonehenge has been a burial and religious site since it was first built, but nothing is known of any specific rituals which might have taken place there in prehistoric times.

However, in the 1870s visitors started going to the monument on the night of the summer solstice – when the rising sun casts its first rays into the middle of the circle.

From 1905, the Ancient Order of Druids – which despite its name dates back only to the 18th century – carried out modern druidic rites at the site.

Pagan ceremonies continued at Stonehenge throughout the 20th century, despite hostility from some archaeologists who insisted there was no link between ancient religion and modern practices.

In the 1970s, the druids were joined by members of the burgeoning New Age movement, who held an annual ‘free festival’ at the monument and saw Stonehenge as a major landmark for followers of alternative lifestyles. 

Problems in the past: Police arrest revellers at Stonehenge after disturbances on the summer solstice in June 1988

Concerned about the thousands of people who were flocking to the monument for the solstice, English Heritage gained a High Court injunction in 1985 banning revellers from entering the site.

When 600 people turned up anyway, it prompted violent clashes with police – known as ‘The Battle of the Beanfield’ – in which eight officers and 16 travellers ended up in hospital.

However in 2000, the monument’s custodians decided to open up Stonehenge twice a year, on the summer and winter solstices – and now it also open for the spring and autumn equinox. 

Essential conservation work gets under way at Stonehenge

(WILTSHIRE, U.K.) Stonehenge Report: Threatened by erosion, outdated restorations, and climate change, the monument’s megaliths need extensive conservation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.16: Restorers plan to mend cracks and holes deep in the rocks, in addition to fixing previous repairs. In 1958, workers pieced together the stones with concrete; now, notes the Guardian, this material will be swapped out for “more forgiving, breathable lime mortar.”

#AceDailyNews says for the First Time in Decades Stonehenge’s famed megaliths haven’t simply stood in a circular arrangement since prehistoric people first placed them there around 2500 B.C.E. The sarsen and bluestones have actually cracked or fallen over numerous times in modern history: At the turn of the 20th century, for instance, a strong winter storm brought one of the iconic monument’s horizontal lintels crashing to the ground.

The British landmark last underwent renovations in the 1950s and ’60s, when high winds on the surrounding plains felled another historic boulder, noted English Heritage, the charitable trust that manages Stonehenge, in a 2018 blog post. But these 20th-century patch-ups no longer hold up to today’s standards. Wind and water have buffeted the stones over thousands of years, causing cracks and other structural problems, reports Michael Holden for Reuters.

On Tuesday, workers once again set up scaffolding at the Unesco World Heritage Site, embarking one of the biggest conservation projects at Stonehenge in decades. Renovations are expected to last two weeks, writes Steven Morris for the Guardian.

Heather Sebire, English Heritage’s senior curator for Stonehenge, tells the Guardian that conservators are focusing their attention on Stone 122, a lintel piece that fell and cracked in 1900. Workers patched it back together in 1958, says Sebire, but when experts inspected the stone recently, they found that “the concrete mortar was cracking with bits falling out.”

The curator adds, “It was a bit of a mess up there, to be honest.”Sally Kistruck, a member of the Edinburgh University team, wheels away a barrowload of earth during the 1958 excavation and restoration. Photo by PA Images via Getty Images

Modern laser scans have also revealed deep natural holes in some of Stonehenge’s boulders. Extreme temperatures caused by climate change have exacerbated these hidden cavities and could contribute to further instability down the line, Sebire tells the Guardian.

As BBC News reports, an individual who witnessed the 1958 renovations will also play a part in the 2021 project. Now 71, Richard Woodman-Bailey was just 8 years old when his father, then the chief architect for ancient monuments, allowed him to place a commemorative coin beneath one of the lintels before it was set in place.

This year, the Royal Mint invited Woodman-Bailey to strike a new commemorative coin that will be placed in the newly applied mortar.

“[W]e struck a 2021-dated £2 silver coin featuring Britannia,” the Mint’s director of collector services, Rebecca Morgan, tells BBC News. Britannia, a helmeted female warrior bearing a spear and trident, first appeared on currency in the country 2,000 years ago and “was carried by visitors to Stonehenge for centuries,” she adds.

Per the Guardian, vintage photos depict 20th-century workers smoking pipes and wearing suits as they restored the ancient monument. This time around, engineers will use protective gear and scaffolding, taking extensive caution as they work on the fragile archaeological site.

“It’s been a privilege to talk to some of those people involved in the last major restoration works at Stonehenge 60 years ago,” Sebile says“[T]heir memories and their special bond with the place really breathe life into the story of its conservation.”
