Astronomy has long been associated with Stonehenge.
According to English Heritage research from 2010, Stonehenge has a long and fascinating link with astronomy. This is owing, in part, to the monument's alignment with the sunrise of the summer solstice and the sunset of the winter solstice. William Stukeley, a pioneering British archaeologist, discovered this in 1720. Many notable astrologers have examined Stonehenge since then, attempting to uncover links between its structure and the stars.
