Pyramids Show Astronomical Alignment

In Astrophysics, Interesting and funny, Science on August 19, 2013 at 19:44

I posted a blog on 16 October, 2011 that NASA Satellites stumble over Tirunallaru Tamil Nadu and that there is no reference to this in NASA site.

It remains a mystery, though some have called it as a Hoax.

NASA is silent.

NASA is notorious for not acknowledging inconvenient questions, like UFO, Aliens.

Now comes news that the alignment of some Pyramids represent an ancient Astronomical phenomenon.

Let me add that there are ancient temples in India, especially in the South, that allow Sunlight on a particular day on the Idol at the Sanctum Sanctorum,Tree yielding(at the Temple premises) fruit straight from the Flower stage(outside the temple it follows the normal process) stone,Idol where if you insert an iron string through one year it comes through the other ear,Idols changing colors every two and a half hours…the list is endless.

Story:

Pyramid represents ancient Astronomical Alignment.

Archaeologists have discovered a pyramid in southern Peru, built between 600 B.C. and 50 B.C. ago, would have aligned with two stone lines and the setting sun during the winter solstice. Here, a 3D model shows the event that happened at the Cerro del Gentil pyramid during the winter solstice.

 

Pyramid and Astronomical Alignment.

dit: Map by Laura Griffin This map shows the location of the stone lines (also called geoglyphs) along with cairns. The two lines which frame the Cerro del Gentil pyramid, as well as the setting winter solstice sun, are highlighted.

The two stone lines, called geoglyphs, are located about 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) east-southeast from the pyramid.

They run for about 1,640 feet (500 meters), and researchers say the lines were “positioned in such a way as to frame the pyramid as one descended down the valley from the highlands.”

Using astronomical software and 3D modeling, the researchers determined that a remarkable event would have occurred during the time of the winter solstice…..

“When viewed in 3D models, these lines appear to converge at a point beyond the horizon and frame not only the site of Cerro del Gentil [where the pyramid is], but also the setting sun during the time of the winter solstice,” the research team wrote in a poster presentation given recently at the Society for American Archaeology annual meeting in Honolulu.

“Thus someone viewing the sunset from these lines during the winter solstice would have seen the sun setting directly behind, or sinking into, the adobe pyramid,” they write. “Thus the pyramid and the linear geoglyph constitute part of a single architectural complex, with potential cosmological significance, that ritualized the entire pampa landscape.” (The word “pampa” stands for plain.)

The flattop pyramid is 16 feet (5 m) high and was built sometime between 600 B.C. and 50 B.C., being reoccupied somewhere between A.D. 200 and 400. Finds near the pyramid include textiles, shells and ceramics. The stone lines were constructed at some point between 500 B.C. and A.D. 400.
