The sunset phenomenon known as Manhattanhenge created striking photo opportunities in New York City on Friday evening, with New Yorkers taking to social media to show off the beautiful view.

During May and June, the sun sets precisely in alignment with Manhattan’s main street grid, and New Yorkers can see the full disk of the sun sitting on the horizon, in the space between the skyscrapers.

Friday night’s photo op began at 8:24 p.m., but there will be another chance on Saturday at 8:25 p.m. ET.

This year the view will be extra special as Manhattanhenge takes place during the moon’s full phase, offering a view of the full moon rising between the skyscrapers after 8 p.m.

Share your photos of Manhattanhenge or the full moon using #NBCHenge and #NBCSupermoon.
