Caption: Moon over Stonehenge, computer illustration. Stonehenge is a Neolithic arrangement of standing stones in the centre of Salisbury Plain, England. The stones were raised around 2000 BC, although the site was in use at least a thousand years earlier. Some of the stones act as markers for the points at which the Sun rises on the winter and summer solstices. It is thought by some that the site contains markers for many similar events.
