This is your last chance to witness the most highly anticipated sunset of the year.

Wednesday, July 12, marks the last, full-sun Manhattanhenge sunset of 2017. After today, fans of the phenomena will have to wait almost an entire year before they can witness it again.

According to the Museum of Natural History, the event will take place at approximately 8:20 p.m. The museum has noted all the best places in New York City to see Manhattanhenge on its website, including 14th, 23rd, 34th, 42nd, 57th, and several streets adjacent to them. You can also get a remarkable view across the river, in Queens.

The museum also suggests arriving to your viewing spot 30 minutes prior to the start of the event.

After Wednesday, the only Manhattanhenge event left in 2017 will be Thursday, July 13, which will only be half-sun.

Manhattanhenge is a unique, astrological event discovered and coined by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The phenomena, in which the sunset perfectly aligns with certain streets in Manhattan, only happens four times a year.

Get out and get your cameras ready.
