Why is it called Manhattanhenge?

Manhattanhenge occurs when the Sun appears between the grid of the city when it’s low in the sky and setting, according to the American Museum of Natural History.

It has been previously referred to as the Manhattan Solstice but was later changed to Manhattanhenge by famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson because the word solstice actually meansstopped sunin the Latin language.

Manhattanhenge comes about because the Sun’s arc has not yet reached these limits, and is on route to them, as we catch a brief glimpse of the setting Sun along the canyons of our narrow streets,” he wrote on the American Museum of Natural History’s website.
