Yesterday marked both the summer solstice and the winter solstice, depending on where you are in the world.

The summer solstice in the northern hemisphere occurs annually on June 21 and is the time at which the sun is at its northernmost point in the sky.

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year, and marks the time when the sun is the at its most northern position.

It also marked the shortest night of the year also, at least for people in the Northern hemisphere.

For those in the southern hemisphere, the longest day of the year will come in December. Today, however is the wintersolstice for those in the south.

For some it may didn't mean anything special. But the day was celebrated by number of pagan around the world.

Stonehenge was supposedly built for this purpose. Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire .

An average of 30,000 people, mostly neo-pagan groups, flocked to Stonehenge for the celebration.
