UPDATED to include photos from today Thursday 8 April.

Some tips below:

1) PARKING/DIRECTIONS: opposite Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool on Independence avenue: West Potomac Park. See photos posted. Waze to Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool (2 Lincoln Memorial Circle NW) and Park at 2912 Independence Avenue SW.

2) PHOTOGRAPHY: Best to be there BEFORE 6AM if you want to get the full experience of darkness to light. Sunrise is at 639AM but daylight emerges at 5:59AM.

3) DRESS WARMLY: light jack recommended.

4) MEETING POINT: Bottom of Lincoln Memorial steps. Look for InterNations sign and pink balloon.

METRO: Foggy Bottom or Smithsonian BUT the metro may NOT BE reliable at that hour. Best to book an uber the night before.

Following the Sunrise viewing event, some will go to Founding Farmers for 8AM. Reservations made ONLY for those who confirmed for Breakfast.


Founding Farmers, 1924 Pennsylvania Avenue. Opens at 8AM.

For COVID safety reasons, we will stay
6 feet apart, and masks must be worn at all times, even if you are vaccinated.

Best to bring water/snacks. Exceptionally, this is a FREE event to enjoy sunrise.
