Forget Manhattanhenge, this is EastAvenHenge

the Rochesteriat You've heard about Manhattanhenge - the popular phenomenon where you can view the sunset down the east-west street grid in Manhattan during summer solstice alignment dates. Without doubt, this is cool. But we may have something far better -

While walking along East Avenue (near the East Ave Wegmans) just after 7:30p last night, August 28th, we noticed the beautiful setting sun to the west...

...and the gorgeous, bright moon rising directly in the east. And while the moon was 98% full last night, viewers will get a treat this weekend (if the skies remain clear) as the full moon is scheduled for tonight and you'll get a 99% almost-full-moon on Sunday evening. Keep in mind this happens in the timeframe 7:30p - 7:45p.

We'll just call this EastAvenHenge.

Get out, take a walk, go for an evening run - these are the moments we love in our city.
