MIThenge

In a time-honored tradition, the MIT community gathers near the Infinite Corridor to view a biannual celestial phenomenon known as "MIThenge." Like clockwork, in mid-November and late January, the circular path of the sun crosses the axis of the Infinite Corridor. At this moment, the setting sun can be seen from the far end of the corridor evoking the mysterious wonder of Stonehenge. Once again, on Jan. 27, 2011, MIT students, faculty and staff gathered to enjoy the peacefulness of the setting sun and a sense of awe.
