Hundreds of revelers gathered at the famous Stonehenge monument in England on Saturday to mark the summer solstice.

A bright yellow sun glimmered through the stones at dawn, on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere.

The solstice always draws crowds to the mysterious set of standing stones, whose purpose remains unclear.

The ancient stone circle on Salisbury Plain, around 80 miles (130 kilometres) southwest of London, was built in three phases between 3000 BC and 1600 BC.
