MANHATTAN, NEW YORK (PIX11)– Tonight is your last chance to see the sun align with Manhattan’s east-to-west grid pattern streets, also known as the Manhattanhenge.

This will be the last of one of its kind for this year.

The best time to view the magical sunset will be at 8:24 p.m. That’s when half of the sunset will be above the horizon and half will be below.

But make sure you try to get out to the street about a half hour before that time, that’s when astrophysicists say you can get a great experience.

The clearest cross streets to see the phenomenon include 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd and 57th.

The Manhattanhenge happens four times a year.
