Had this remarkable moment tonight where the setting sun was shining directly through our back door. Turns out we’re aligned with one of LA’s solstice streets.  https://sztanko.github.io/solsticestreets/cities/los-angeles_california.html 

I knew we were on the old Spanish pueblo grid but didn’t know how much the angle in our neighborhood varied from downtown. Here’s more on that from @nathanmasters.  https://www.kcet.org/shows/lost-la/why-la-has-clashing-street-grids 

So what do we call LA’s version of Manhattanhenge and where’s the best place to see it?
