Missed Manhattanhenge? Here Are The 5 Best Instagrams!

 

In case you’re too embarrassed to ask what Manhattanhenge is and too lazy to Google it, we’ll tell you: Manhattanhenge is when the setting sun aligns with the east-west streets of the main grid of Manhattan (thank you, Wikipedia.). It occurs twice a year, and last night was the second night for 2015. You’ll have to wait about another 10 months to see it again, so for right now, here are five killer Instagram shots of yesterday’s sunset:
