What: Spring Equinox sunrise observance at Monks Mound
Where: Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site, Illinois, USA
When: Spring Equinox Sunrise
Visiting the Site: Monks Mound is an ancient site for celebrating the spring equinox. At the moment the site is only regularly open during visiting hours, 9am – 5pm, meaning that it’s closed during the sunrise itself. Group visits can be booked in advance though, and a sunrise equinox event may be possible to coordinate with the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site. For more information on how to do this or to find out whether there are groups already organized for the event, please see their website.
A Note about Visiting Ancient Sites:
Please be mindful and respectful of the ancient sites. Treat them with care as to not disturb them, damage them, or remove anything from them. Help protect these incredible sites so that they can continue to stand the test of time.
