May 28, 2018 . New Yorkers, get ready to marvel at Manhattanhenge . Because you have to be in the middle of the street to see Manhattanhenge , remember that safety comes first. People also throng to the Pershing Square overpass near Grand Central Terminal, but that location is very close to traffic.

The dazzling sunset known as Manhattanhenge will be visible two days this week in New York City. Here are some tips on where to see it, and scenic photos from an earlier Manhattanhenge sunset in 2018 .

In 2002, everyone's favorite astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson pointed out something very peculiar in New York. Twice a year, the infamous city grid—which is actually off-kilter, about 29 degrees clockwise from the actual cardinal points of north, south, east, and west—lines up with the setting sun. Now, if you can't picture exactly what Manhattanhenge looks like, have no fear. Every year hundreds of New Yorkers flock to certain intersections, the easternmost blocks of 34th Street, 42nd Street, and 57th Street to be exact, to the dismay of taxi drivers and commuting buses alike, to capture the phenomenon for social media.

As always, there are four chances to see Manhattanhenge. The solstice of sorts offers two-day viewings: May 29 at 8:13 p.m., half of the sun will line up with the grid, and May 30 at 8:12 p.m., the full sun will line up with the grid. deGrasse Tyson suggests arriving about 30 minutes ahead of the set time to make sure you have a spot for the stunning celestial event. If you miss the post-Memorial Day Weekend Manhattanhenge due to some cloudy weather or crowds, you'll be able to catch the setting sun hit right on the grid in mid-July, too. Be ready on July 12 at 8:20 p.m., when the full sun will line up with the grid, and again on July 13 at 8:20 p.m., when half of the sun will line up with the grid.

Our advice? Stay in Manhattan one day to catch the classic shot then head to Gantry Plaza State Park or the nearby Hunters Point South Park in Long Island City the next night for a breathtaking view of the full New York City skyline.

Between jostling pedestrians and moving cars for a good spot (use common sense, people), here are few tips for taking the perfect Manhattanhenge Instagram.

  • If you're using an iPhone, turn on HDR mode. This feature captures three levels of exposure and stitches them all together, which can help prevent your phone's camera from being overwhelmed by the sun's direct light.
  • Lock your camera's exposure. Find something neutral, in this case probably a brick building. On an iPhone, hold your finger on that point for a couple seconds. Your screen may brighten up and “AE/AF lock” at the top. On some Android phones you can use the same trick, or try holding the shutter button on the screen and your phone will beep once it's locked. This also helps balance the sun's strong light, and lets you create a little more depth in your photos.
  • Try to find a less-crowded intersection. Photographers flock to the Tudor City Overpass on 42nd Street for the height and to the 34th Street to get the Empire State Building into their photo. Head a few blocks north or south of the popular hot spots for a little more room to actually snap a photo. Don't expect to find a perfect empty corner, but less trafficked one-way streets are a start.
  • Finally, never, we repeat, never look at the sun through binoculars. It can cause severe eye damage. So rely on that camera zoom if you want to see Manhattanhenge even closer.
