The town of Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands boasts a unique phenomenon in the form of a double sunset, which can be witnessed from St. Edward’s Churchyard on and around the summer solstice in June. The illusion is created by the sun disappearing behind a rocky outcrop called The Cloud, to re-emerge briefly at a lower level before finally setting.
