An interesting concept to mark Midsummer's Day, and they even have a plan for a grey day. Today the "Tern Collective will transform Manchester into a giant sundial, with the Beetham Tower as the gnomon (shadow-maker). We will spend the longest day following the shadow. Hour by hour, we will mark its position, and the passage of time, by leaving a photograph of the Tower. Tern Collective is a collaboration between Annie Harrison, Jude Macpherson and Jacqueline Wylie."

It was sunny when I took this photo yesterday evening of the 47 storey Beetham Tower. At 168 metres / 551 ft, it is evidently currently the 8th tallest building in the United Kingdom. It's visible from 10 of the 38 English counties on a clear day and is the tallest residential building in the country.
