Aliens and creepy end of the world theories as people celebrate summer solstice

UFOs, violent deaths and conspiracies around the summer solstice are pretty common.

Spooky stone formations and deathly aliens often haunt the minds of those who believe in weird conspiracies and strange, magical events.

The summer solstice is on June 21 and related landmarks like Stonehenge have been part of those theories for some time.

Crowds of people will be travelling down to the famous British landmark Stonehenge today, as the sun rises on the north east side of the rock formation, while different celebrations around the world will also take place.

Senior pagans often get angry with others indulging in their religion-observing big orgies. One real-life wizard told the Star last year that the day "marks a celebration of fertility as kinky witches show off their ability."

Some people still believe in the magical power of the sun and the effects it has on our lives, while others are more interested in the history behind the often whacky theories.

Here are some of the creepy June 21 conspiracies.

When is the end of the world?

There are plenty of theories over when the end of the world will be and usually people are worried about things like nuclear armageddon.

Predictions about the mental state of Vladimir Putin and his arsenal of nuclear warheads get a few people worried, while climate change threatens us all, according to the experts.

Plenty of people, thanks to the internet, blockbuster films and the badly interpreted ancient calendars, believed the world would end on December 21 2012 according to the Mayan calendar.

Obviously, this didn't happen so some people put forward the theory that the world would actually end on June 21, 2020.

Shockingly, this didn't happen either, but would have seen wild fantasies of massive tidal waves and huge volcanic eruptions come true.

No credible scientist has ever supported the theory the world should have ended on these dates, while our sources, an actual calendar, confirmed this.

Who built Stonehenge?

Aliens did not build Stonehenge; some very clever people with stones and tools did.

It may seem odd to some reasonably minded people that extra-terrestrial life intelligent thought to build spaceships that fly millions of miles to Earth, would choose to leave a stone monument in Wiltshire covered in moss – half of which has fallen down.

It was built around 5,000 years ago and there has been a range of theories put forward about why it was built, from burial sites to a solar calendar.

People flock to Stonehenge on the solstice every year to watch the sunrise behind the Heel Stone and watch "its first rays shine into the heart of Stonehenge".

What is Midsummer?

Midsummer is the name given to celebrations held around the summer solstice in the middle of summer.

Midsummer celebrations in Sweden are particularly important and the country's website explained that Swedes are "in a hurry to get things done during the relatively short summer season".

It said: "Midsummer Eve is usually celebrated in the countryside, which means that on the day before, everyone leaves town, everything closes and the city streets are suddenly spookily deserted.

"The country’s main thoroughfares, on the other hand, are normally packed. Queues of cars stretch away into the distance, and at the end of the road, family and friends wait among silver birches in full, shimmering bloom."

The 2019 film of the same name, may have a few people thinking the Swedes will be indulging in some strange sex acts and murder-suicide rituals over the coming days, but this is just pure fantasy.
