Manhattan to view special sunset

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (CNN) - People in Manhattan will be treated to a weekend of special sunsets starting tonight.

It is a phenomenon known as "Manhattanhenge."

This is when the sunset is aligned with the street grid, giving the streets a beautiful orange glow.

Meteorologists expect the weather to be great for viewing tonight and tomorrow night.

A "Manhattanhenge" sunrise also occurs twice every winter, usually in the first weeks of December and January.
