Pagan Dawn 



LONDON (AFP) - The lure of Stonehenge seems nearly as old as the stones themselves, and the passage on Monday from spring into summer will uphold that hallowed tradition, with 30,000 expected to welcome in the solstice at dawn.

New Age hippies and believers in Druidic, Pagan and other pre-Christian religions are often joined by simple good-time seekers at the Stonehenge Summer Solstice in Wiltshire for what has in past years led to a bit too much revelry for the tastes of local police.

In a dramatic change from the norm, metereologists have predicted clear skies at dawn at 4:58 am, which means that revellers will have the exceptional opportunity to see the solstice arrive unshrouded by fog and cloud.
