We have revised the stars that we think were marked by the Stonehenge Barrows as follows: The system of barrows seems to have its origin at least as far back as B. According to our analysis, the long barrow at Winterbourne Stoke Crossroads marks the crossing point of the ecliptic, ecliptic meridian and celestial meridian at the point of the Vernal Equinox ca.
Actually, the 'echoes' were much too powerful to be simple reflections of signals from Earth. But there was a problem: That's just because the constellation lies near the pole of the Ecliptic, perpendicular to the Earth's orbital plane around the sun, so any Zodiacal map will be centred near it.
He liked the analysis I'd made of Erich von Daniken's claims, where I concluded that Earth had not been visited more than four times, at most. Category A would be our objective, an artefact of unquestionably extraterrestrial origin.
But Alan pressed me to include a new category, C, which would be anomalous astronomical alignments in man-made structures - anomalous because they revealed knowledge which the builders should not have had.
I wasn't impressed at first. Further revision made it c. The altitude of the pole above the northern horizon is equal to the observer's latitude, and the heavenly bodies circle around it, parallel to the equator, with the daily rotation of the Earth. The altitude of a body above the horizon, and its azimuth measured along the horizon from the north point, change constantly as the Earth turns.
It's universally agreed that the Stonehenge Avenue and the later structure both mark the midsummer sunrise. We have located a smaller version of it in a prewar aerial photo, but it's still historically suspect.
Still earlier photos, taken by balloon, show a similar but different pattern. It would be remarkable if that was a coincidence, but if it's not coincidence, it's an extraordinary finding. The Galactic Centre is 27, light-years from us and hidden behind dense clouds of absorbing dust in the inner regions of the Milky Way, so its location cannot be pinpointed visually, only with a radiotelescope.
Until you know exactly where the Centre is, you can't determine the true plane of the Galactic Equator and the true positions of the Galactic Poles. At the Moscow General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union innew values for the positions of the poles and the Centre were officially adopted, based on the distribution of neutral hydrogen in the inner Milky Way and study of the radio source Sagittarius A.
But neither will be relevant when it enters our Solar System: If the spacecraft's attitude-sensing platform was fixed, built into its structure, it would still be correctly lined up with the sky once a day.
What looks more likely, on Fig. In fact, after Stonehenge I was built, around BC the site was abandoned for over years while the same neolithic people built the much larger complex of Avebury and Silbury Hill, due north of Stonehenge itself.
I looked for an optical marker, something which would have let the builders create Stonehenge without knowing about galactic coordinates or even without a spacecraft necessarily being there.
The Ecliptic and the Pyramids. And when that line is projected south, it meets the equator due south of the Egyptian 'Memphite Necropolis', containing the great pyramids of Giza.
That one can't be verified optically in a planetarium with the same certainty, because the tilt of the Earth's axis to the equator is not constant, varying between 22 and 24 degrees. None of the planetaria we've used could allow for that, but the relationship is extremely close, even today. Below, we'll see some reason to think that might have been their intended purpose, at least.
The Pyramids and the Sphinx.Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury. Physical and chemical analysis of the remains has shown that the cremated were almost equally men and women, and included some children.
Stonehenge • One of the most significant architectural achievements of the Neolithic Era. • This megalith was believed to be erected around BCE and the stones are roughly 24 feet in height.
• Stonehenge is made up of two half circle-like formations, one within the other, and the diameter is roughly 97 feet. • The actual intent of Stonehenge is still not . Recent analysis of these bones has revealed that nearly all the burials were of adult males, aged years, in good health and with little sign of hard labor or disease.
No doubt, to be interred at Stonehenge was a mark of elite status and these remains may well be those of some of the first political leaders of Great Britain, an island with. Aug 03, · The people who built Stonehenge came from Wales.
They took the massive rocks that were used to build the mysterious structure from west Wales on a . Sep 09, · The Stonehenge-like granite slabs, known as the Georgia Guidestones, have sparked controversy around the world and their meaning is still up for debate.
New technology and know-how suggests that the builders of Stonehenge were Welsh. A breakthrough study using modern technology claims to have identified the builders of England’s most mysterious.
