To judge from the feedback we have received so far, the Stonehenge winter solstice event 2009 was a great success. It was organised by the Royal Astronomical Society together with English Heritage to celebrate the connection between Stonehenge and the sky, and was the closing event of the International Year of Astronomy 2009 in the UK.
