People in Manhattan will be treated to a weekend of special sunsets. 

It's a phenomenon known as "Manhattanhenge". This is when the sunset is aligned with the street grid -- giving the streets a beautiful orange glow. 

Meteorologists expect the weather to be great for viewing Saturday night. 

A "Manhattanhenge" sunrise also occurs twice every winter, usually in the first weeks of December and January.
