The Nazca (Nasca) Mystery Rock Image Deciphered as Anthropomorphic and Cupmark (Cupule) Marking of Stars of Andromeda and Pisces on Earth

This decipherment follows the previous "Location" posting relating to the "Next" Great Google Earth Image Mystery for Archaeology, Astronomy and Archaeoastronomy Buffs.

At Nazca,
the "Mystery Rock" image is located via Google Earth and Digital Globe

(these clipped images -- used here as "fair use" for research -- are copyrighted in their base image by Google Earth and Digital Globe)

at
latitude 14°39'5.29"S
and
longitude 75°14'17.89"W

The Mystery Rock is located in the utmost northernmost corner
of the entire flatland part of the complex of Nazca Lines,
where the mystery rock is virtually lodged between two "horns", as it were,

as shown by the pin location in the image below clipped by us from Google Earth. It is on the outer perimeter of the so-called Nazca Lines "fields". 


We show the "Mystery Rock" in larger size below as deciphered by us showing that this rock, nearly the size of a football field, shows stars of Andromeda and Pisces to the right of the "horns" of Triangulum and Aries and to the left of the Great Square of Pegasus, and does so by drawing the stars via anthropomorphic figures and cupmark-like markings. There is no doubt about the depiction of this general part of the sky, but issues remain as to the precise identification of individual stars and figures, and this will require substantiation by others.


Below we show the correspondence of stars and anthropomorphic figures and cupmarks (via cupules) on the ground at the Nazca Mystery Rock, using star positions via Starry Night Pro, http://astronomy.starrynight.com/. Click the image to see it in larger format.


Via the above image one can see that the Nazca Mystery Rock has a male head profile drawn in the stars with the crown of the head at Delta Andromedae and a female head profile just below that with the eye at about the level of Zeta Andromedae, while most of the stars marked are stars of Pisces between the "upper" fish of Pisces to the left and the Great Square of Pegasus to the right, with the stars Eta Piscium marking the lower left corner and Gamma Pegasi (Algenib) marking the lower right hand corner of the Mystery Rock star group.

A fish, perhaps a depiction of a Peruvian Anchoveta, is pictured in the bottom middle. As the Wikipedia writes:
"[The Peruvian anchoveta] has yielded greater catches than any other single wild fish species in the world...." [emphasis added]
Surely that fish was also an important food source for Nazca fishermen in ancient days.

An additional figure is pictured on the rock at the right bottom, but hard to identify. We think perhaps it could be a child, i.e. the child of the man and woman previously mentioned. To the left, by the way, the man seems to have his hair tied in a long pig-tail, which could be seen as a serpent, but unlikely.

WHY are THESE STARS depicted at this MYSTERY ROCK?

In terms of dating, in the era around ca. 1150 A.D.,  the celestial meridian ran approximately through the center of the stars Delta Andromedae and Zeta Andromedae, thus putting the point of the Vernal Equinox virtually between them, right at the middle of stars we today view as Pisces, the fish. That same line then continued on to Beta Ceti, i.e. Diphda in Cetus.

Note that the right ascension of the star Beta Ceti (Diphda in Cetus)
-- where our Native America land survey by astronomy hits its most southeastern point in the Northern Hemisphere --
is virtually identical to the right ascension of the star Zeta Andromedae in the middle of this mystery rock.

Via the Wikipedia for Beta Ceti
Constellation Cetus
Right ascension 00h 43m 35.37090s[1]
Declination –17° 59′ 11.7827″[1]
Apparent magnitude (V) 2.02[2]

Via the Wikipedia for Zeta Andromedae
Constellation Andromeda
Right ascension 00h 47m 20.3254s[1]
Declination +24° 16′ 01.841″[1]
Apparent magnitude (V) 3.92 to 4.14[2]

Right ascension for a star is comparable astronomically to terrestrial longitude. 

Beta Ceti has a declination that is ca. 42 degrees from Zeta Andromedae, and so the angular separation between the two stars is ca. 42 degrees.

The latitude of the Miami Circle is 25°46'10.05"N
The latitude of the Mystery Rock at Nazca is 14°39'5.29"S
The latitudinal distance between the two locations is thus nearly 42 degrees. Perhaps one served as a celestial and terrestrial measure for the other.

Hence, the two stars could be closely related in the Native America land survey by astronomy, and Nazca could be viewed as a continuation of the general North/South survey into the Southern Hemisphere. After all, the Miami Circle, as we have deciphered it, shows stars of the Southern Hemisphere, as they are visible at Nazca, Peru. Moreover, Cetus, the Whale, marks the end of the Nazca Lines fields at the southernmost corner of those fields. Hence, these stars surely served a celestial and terrestrial measurement function at Nazca.

Another possible era for the Mystery Rock image, however, is the era around 1000 B.C., when the celestial equator marked a line which is the bottom limit of the rock figures, i.e. the line from approximately the stars Eta Piscium marking the lower left corner and Gamma Pegasi (Algenib) marking the lower right hand corner of the Mystery Rock star group. Which date is correct?

Accordingly, we need to return to Florida for more detailed decipherment material, which begins in the next posting.

Why People Fly From Facts That Challenge What They Believe To Be True

The main problem on our human planet Earth is that people prefer to believe that what is true is what they believe, and they fly from facts that contradict their established thoughts. See at the Scientific American, Why People "Fly from Facts". http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/why-people-fly-from-facts/

Rose-Colored Misperceptions About Income Inequality: The Divide Is Far Greater Than People Think

Read about Economic Inequality: It’s Far Worse Than You Think at Scientific American. People's rose-colored misperceptions about what actually is true as opposed to what they believe to be true are reflected in all walks of life and all fields of knowledge.

Location Solution of the Next Great Google Earth Image Mystery for Archaeology, Astronomy and Archaeoastronomy Buffs : Andromeda and Pisces Between the Horns of Aries and Triangulum at the North Corner of Nazca

We recently posted the "Next" Great Google Earth Image Mystery for Archaeology, Astronomy and Archaeoastronomy Buffs -- but to save interested persons a lot of unnecessary work -- with you having virtually no chance of finding the image -- we post here parts of the solution, because that image has eluded hundreds if not thousands of Nazca Lines researchers, and it is "right under their noses", also the noses of the ancients, veritably.

The mystery image is at Nazca. 

It is on the perimeter of the Nazca Lines. All those people looking for the solution to the Nazca Lines in those lines would have found the solution in the perimeter, outside of the lines.

Here is the GPS of the Next Great Google Earth Image Mystery Image at Nazca where it marks Andromeda and Pisces between the horns of Aries and Triangulum, whose stars are marked at Nazca at
latitude 14°39'5.29"S and longitude  75°14'17.89"W.

The precise star location you can find further below using Fourmilab's Aim Point at the Virtual Telescope Control Panel.

To add a Nazca Lines .kmz to your Google Earth software enter Nazca Lines - ナスカの地上絵 in Google Search where you will find the download link.

The hummingbird that led to us to all this is right under Alpha Pegasi, with 5 stars at the tail and 2 to each wing. It is located at
GPS latitude 14°41'37.02"S and longitude 75°15'47.90"W.


After we got there, we looked for the Pleiades.

The Pleiades at Nazca are located at GPS latitude  14°39'26.54"S and longitude 75°14'34.28"W. The Pleiades are marked again, surely in another era, nearby at the upper left of those markings.

Rho Arietis at the Vernal Equinox ca. 1359 B.C. is marked at
latitude 14°39'23.74"S  and longitude 75°14'13.33"W.


And then, the mystery image followed....

Below is the mystery image upon which we have overlaid the corresponding stars of Andromeda and Pisces via Starry Night Pro, http://astronomy.starrynight.com/. Click the image to see it in larger format. Some of the star positions are exact, some are somewhat removed to the right, left, up or down, as the case may be, perhaps this also to do with airborne camera angles and photography image collation. A good example are the stars that form either the lips of the inner figure and/or the beak of the bird at the lower right. It is very close anyway. The stars are a bit to the left and a bit higher than that image part but there is no real doubt about the image and stellar correspondence.

The Location of the Next Great Google Earth Image Mystery for Archaeology, Astronomy and Archaeoastronomy Buffs : Andromeda and Pisces Between the Horns of Aries and Triangulum at the North Corner of Nazca


Native America Southern Hemisphere Land Survey Revealed at Miami Circle: Plus The Aztec Calendar Stone, Izapa Stela 5, and the Next Google Earth Mystery Image at Nazca

This is the text explanation of the decipherment images of the Miami Circle, Brickell Point, Florida, USA, found in the immediately preceding postings. It is a bit hodge podge at the moment, but maybe that is OK, since it reflects various stages of the decipherment work. But there is massive info here, massive.

Using the software program Starry Night Pro, which permits star positions to be viewed at any location on Earth and in any historical viz. archaeological era of the past, we found that:
  • if the largest hole on the Miami Circle (which could be seen as having a "cloudy" tail in photographs of the circle) were viewed to mark the position of the perihelion passage of Halley's Comet,
  • if the holes and other markings on the Miami Circle represented stars, and,
  • if a straight but faint southeasterly line marked on the Miami Circle marked the celestial meridian,
  • then the largest hole on the Miami Circle would mark the position of Halley's Comet on its orbital path on the night of March 24/25, 1131 B.C. near the day of the Equinox exactly.
That year date is in the general ballpark of the provisional ca. 1500 B.C. date we found for the astronomy at the Florida Crystal River mounds and it perhaps corresponds with the date of 1359 B.C., said by some to be a significant calendric date of the Olmec culture. Three orbits of Halley's Comet x 76 years per orbital = 228 years and 1359 B.C. minus 1131 B.C. = 228 years. We thus could explain the calendric "Halley" nature of the 1359 B.C. date.

As one can read at Mesoamerican calendars at the Wikipedia:
"The mesoamerican calendar probably originated with the Olmecs, and a settlement existed at Izapa, in southeast Chiapas Mexico, before 1200 BCE. There, at a latitude of about 15° N, the Sun passes through zenith twice a year, and there are 260 days between zenithal passages, and gnomons (used generally for observing the path of the Sun and in particular zenithal passages), were found at this and other sites. The sacred almanac may well have been set in motion on August 13, 1359 BCE, in Izapa." [located on the current southwest border between Mexico and Guatemala, we added the link]
Izapa has a stela, Stela 5, that shows a section of the same sky in which Halley is pictured on the Miami Circle, but Izapa is limited in its southern stellar visibility by its more northerly location and thus does not show stars as far South.

Izapa Stela number 5 has been much discussed in religious circles and we want to stay out of that discussion entirely, especially since the best and earliest photograph of Stela 5 is that taken by Matthew W. Stirling's original National Geographic expedition, a photograph found online at the Book Of Mormon sources -- http://bookofmormonresources.blogspot.de/2012/07/v-garth-norman-in-mexico-city.html.

Hence, we do not present any photographs of the Stela or of the figures on it at all here, since anyone interested can find them online.

Rather, we present here only our astronomical decipherment of Izapa Stela 5 as follows. Anyone who wants to match the stars to the figures on that Stela on their own can do so, since the main figures are crystal clear:


Our illustration above, which is drawn on a Starry Night Pro astronomy software star image clip, shows that we date Izapa Stela 5 to March 24/25 1131 B.C., when Halley's Comet marked the Equinox point in the stars of Lupus, whose protuberance is at the edge of the Milky Way.

The stars of Centaurus are found in the middle and to the right, with the extension of Centaurus in the middle marking what past religious discussion has seen as the Tree of Life.

Crux at the bottom right is marked by the "standard-bearer", also at the edge of the Milky Way.

The Galactic Meridian is the next to bottom-most line on Stela 5 at the same level at which the "standard-bearer" as Crux is sitting.

Below that Galactic Meridian but directly above the edge of the Milky Way, stars are marked for Ara, Norma, Triangulum Australe, Circinus and Musca.

Hence, no fewer than three "borders" of the image, so-to-speak, are marked by edges of the Milky Way, showing why this portion of the sky was portrayed as it was. Halley's Comet is marked by the largest round depression at the left side of Stela 5, similar to the Miami Circle.

As presented in previous postings in image form, our decipherment of the Miami Circle shows it to be an ancient sky map that we date similarly to the Izapa Stela 5 to the night of March 24/25, 1131 B.C. (the Equinox) at (or near) the perihelion (closest to our Sun) passage of Halley's Comet in that era. We say "at (or near)" because exact software astronomy calculation of Halley may vary.

Our 2015 revised decipherment supercedes our decipherment of the Miami Circle made ca. 10 years ago, in which we correctly also concluded that the Miami Circle was a star map. We at that time understandably -- but erroneously, as we ourselves have discovered -- assumed that the star map reflected the Miami location at 25°46'10.05"N 80°11'20.12"W, but that turns out not to be so. Rather, the Miami Circle shows stars in the Southern Hemisphere not visible in Miami, but definitely visible in Nazca, Peru, viz. the general geographic location of Nazca (Nasca).

As we progress, consider copying those above GPS coordinates into Google Earth and/or your resident astronomy software program -- we recommend Starry Night Pro, especially since the user can set the location anywhere on Earth and also set the time back to any desired era.

Although some stars of the Northern Hemisphere are marked on the Miami Circle as expected, once we provisionally identified the largest hole on the Miami Circle as Halley's Comet, there was no escaping the conclusion that the Miami Circle marked primarily stars of the Southern Hemisphere.

Why would the ancients have done that?

We presume that this was because Brickell Point marked the southeast end point of the North America part of the ancient Native America land survey by astronomy, in which Miami marked the star Diphda in Cetus, and the Florida Peninsula marked the stars of Cetus, so that one was in the depths of the underworld with the "whale". There was nowhere deeper to go in the stars, not at Miami. So they went to Nazca where the whale at the Nazca Lines is at one edge of the entire area, and continued from there.

South America would then have been surveyed by its own Cetus-related system, and as we shall see from the megalithic and rock art locations in South America,

the Miami Circle tells us how it was done.

The Miami Circle served as a map recordation of the ancient land survey by astronomy of the Native America Southern Hemisphere and showed how that survey was oriented in the stars, being marked along the Celestial Equator of that era, with the farthest East of South America in Brazil marked at Erere by Orion, the far Northwest and the Libra Equinox point marked at Careyeros Hill, with Corvus marked at Ciudad Perdida, Canis Minor at Calcoene and the Winter Solstice marked at Mont d'Argent. All those lines are marked at the so-called Nazca Lines.

Nazca also has a sensational cupmark-like-dotted (cupule-like-dotted) anthropomorphic figure location nearly the size of a football field, a location which, to our astonishment, is apparently otherwise unknown.  

We found it via the hummingbird at the Miami Circle, whose astronomical location was thus clear, and going to the corresponding hummingbird at Nazca, from there we soon found the Pleiades, and from there, it was not long until we began to understand the system.

The image below is one of the keys to understanding Nazca, whose astronomy is so extensive, that we will initially present a decipherment of only this one item in the next posting.

Golf season is upon us and whether we do much more on Nazca in the near future remains to be seen. It is a mammoth project -- maybe for younger people, as my eyes are simply suffering from too much squint-producing detail work, I can tell you that. I will provide some identifications soon, but not all.

Below again is the image of the previously posted

The "Next" Great Google Earth Image Mystery for Archaeology, Astronomy and Archaeoastronomy Buffs : Where is the Location of this Image on Earth and in the Stars?

Now you know the image is at Nazca.

See if you can find out where. Do yourself a favor and examine the PERIMETER area of the Nazca lines, not the lines themselves. Everyone has ignored the perimeter, and that is where the key to the system is found! Look between the horns of Aries (and Triangulum)....





Let us in any case return to the Miami Circle.

We examined as many online photographs online as we could find. Our decipherment relied upon our own tracing of the dots and marks found on a photograph at the non-profit Archaeological and Historical Conservancy, Inc. ["AHC"], 4800 SW 64th Ave Suite 107, Davie, FL 33014, found at Menotrix.com at http://www.mnemotrix.com/ahci_web/projects.html. Their Miami Circle photograph is found online at http://www.mnemotrix.com/ahci_web/circle2.jpg,

We have no affiliation with AHC or Menotrix and published our decipherment of the Miami Circle via that photograph as "fair use", especially because it is essential to show that we are using actual and not imagined dots or marks.

The sky map that resulted from the decipherment can not have been seen at Miami in that era. An image created with Starry Night Pro shows clearly at a GPS setting of 25°46'10.05"N 80°11'20.12"W and a time of 23:00 on March 24, 1131 B.C. that Miami is too far North to show the lowest stars, with the grey horizon line showing the limits of stellar visibility looking South.

The solution, which was unexpected and which creates many new unforeseen problems, was to find a fitting location for sky pictured on the Miami Circle, and we initially used a  GPS setting of 14°49'05.60"S 74°59'41.64"W, which is the middle of the "heart" of that Cetus-shaped figure near the Nazca "Cetus" Whale that marks the southest corner of the Nazca Lines system.

Check it all out on Google Earth, especially via Nazca Lines - ナスカの地上絵 by Makoto Kamada, available in KML (Keyhole Markup Language) in the downloadable KMZ file NazcaLines.kmz at http://stdkmd.com/nazca/ which can be loaded into Google Earth for viewing at http://stdkmd.com/nazca/NazcaLines.kmz.

Why were the stars that were placed on the Miami Circle observed at Nazca? Was Nazca the location where the ancients made their land survey calculations by astronomy, or was this the central location for the land survey of Mesoamerica and South America?

How did we come to the decipherment solution for the Miami Circle?

We initially thought that the largest circular-type hole by far on the Miami Circle marked either the celestial or ecliptic pole, but there was a serious problem with that idea, namely that the hole was too far off center on the circle and could thus hardly have marked midheaven on a circular sky map.

Could that large hole mark something else?

To fully comprehend the subsequent discussion of the Miami Circle at Brickell Point in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. and the postings to follow, which deal with connected ancient historical sites in Mesoamerica and South America, it is essential at the start to take a look at the following sources, with whom we have no affiliation:
    1. Brent R. Weisman, Herschel E. Shepard, and George M. Luer, The Origin and Significance of the Brickell Point Site (8DA12)
    2. Robert S. Carr and John Ricisak, Preliminary Report on Salvage Archaeological Investigations of the Brickell Point Site (8DA12)
  • Robert S. McIvor, Star Patterns on the Aztec Calendar Stone, ADSABS.HARVARD.EDU, Research Papers -- Articles de recherche SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS), Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Vol. 94, p. 56, where McIvor writes:

    "The most obvious feature of the dotted patterns is the simple fact that the Aztecs mapped the heavens by displaying stars as dots or circles....

    The present investigation of the dotted patterns on the Aztec calendar stone tells us something about the history and practice of astronomy. The custom of forming star groups by “connecting the dots” appears to have been a universal pursuit. It was no different in Mesoamerica than in Mesopotamia, or in China, or the Land of the Inca, or in modern astronomy. While there are some differences in the final results, there are also remarkable similarities. In many ways, the constellation identifications support the concept of cultural diffusion....


    As argued here, the Aztec calendar stone, in addition to all its other layers of fascinating information, seems to be a permanent record of an independent observation of an unusual star [nova or comet] that was recorded by the Chinese in 1011 CE, with the same year and sky position
    chiseled on basalt.
    "
What could that largest hole mark? We then observed that that largest hole had cloud-like marks etched upwards behind it on the Miami Circle surface -- almost like a comet's tail. Could it mark a comet? We had that idea before reading McIvor's article on the Aztec Calendar Stone (the Stone of the Sun, Stone of the Fifth Sun) whose edge stars later served as confirmation of our analysis. Also that stone has a large hole on innner left outside edge, near the star dots, and we think it marks Halley's Comet.

We further observed a faint straight line on the Miami Circle running from that same largest hole in a southeasterly direction. We then asked ourselves whether that line might mark one of the principal equatorial, celestial or galactic parameters, i.e. ecliptic, ecliptic meridian, celestial equator, celestial meridian, galactic equator, or galactic meridian.

That was an astonishing result for us, but see the publication by Robert S. McIvor cited previously, where we think Halley is also pictured as a large hole near the stars on the left side, which stars are the same there as on our deciphered Miami Circle.  We think that McIvor's "nova or comet" was also Halley -- some ca. 2128 years later, i.e. 1131 B.C. to ca. 997 A.D., i.e. the equivalent of 28 cycles of the 76-year orbital cycle of Halley.

That date of 1311 B.C. is is nearly 900 years earlier than the previous recognized recorded date of the perihelion passage of Halley, although the exact accuracy of the year depends on the accuracy of the calculational alogrithm used by Starry Night Pro to calculate the orbits of Halley back into time. See our previous posting at LexiLine on the Maya calendar, Piedras Negras and Halley's Comet and note that we stated that:
"Halley appears again as the illustrious king Yich'aak K'ak' (Fiery Claw) whose "flint and shield" are brought down by Jasaw Chan K'awiil I on (sic) August 5, 695 A.D. - but of course this is 2+ years earlier in fact."
If we take 693 A.D. and add it to 1131 B.C. we get a sum of the passage of 1824 years, divided by 76, the average orbital period of Halley, and we get a result of exactly 24 appearances of Halley in that period. The world last saw Halley's Comet in 1986 A.D. Halley will enter our solar system again only in the year 2061 A.D.

If we add 2061 A.D. to 1131 B.C. we get a sum of the passage of 3192 years, divided by 76 results in exactly 42 appearances of Hally. Douglas Adams greets.

Native America Southern Hemisphere Land Survey Revealed at Miami Circle: Plus The Aztec Calendar Stone,  Izapa Stela 5, and the Next Google Earth Mystery Image at Nazca

Brickell Point Miami Circle Sky Map Shows a Sky Not Visible at that Location but Visible at Nazca (Nasca)

The revised decipherment images in the preceding postings and in the subsequent explanatory text posting supercede our decipherment of the Miami Circle made ca. 10 years ago, in which we correctly also concluded that the Miami Circle was a sky map of the stars.

We at that time understandably -- but erroneously, as we ourselves have discovered -- assumed that the star map reflected the Miami location at 25°46'10.05"N 80°11'20.12"W, but that turns out not to be so.

Rather, as easily shown astronomically via the images below

--which we have made using the stellar (superb) astronomy software program
Starry Night Pro, http://astronomy.starrynight.com/ --

the stars on the Miami Circle are those of the general geographic location of Nazca (Nasca),

where we pinpoint the general location using Nazca Lines at 14°48'59.34"S 74°59'35.27"W. Why Nazca? We will explain that in the next posting.

If you use Google Earth that will show you the correct Nazca Lines location, but if you use Google Maps it will take you only to the Carretera Panamericana Sur, the Pan-American Highway just before the Peaje Nasca toll fee booth.

Note that we prefer and use the Nazca spelling because Nasca for us is too close to NASCAR and its massive following and we have already seen cases of confusion via the latter spelling and pronunciation "nascah", like in "cah" car.

Stars Visible at Miami on March 24, 1131 B.C.
(the grey line at the bottom shows the horizon limit of star visibility)


Stars Visible at Nazca on March 24, 1131 B.C.
(the grey line at the bottom shows the horizon limit of star visibility)


The correspondence of our 2015 Miami Circle sky map decipherment to the above map is ... nearly perfect, and, of course, we made the decipherment before finding the map. Why Nazca? Why 1131 B.C.?

The main explanatory text will be posted at the close of this series of postings and separately from the images.
There is no alternative since the images take so much memory.

The Miami Circle at Brickell Point: A Wider Decipherment Image 2 in Color Including Material Outside the Circle

The first Miami Circle posting -- the posting before this one -- was the basic Miami Circle decipherment 2015 in color.

This posting is that same Miami Circle decipherment 2015 in black and white, followed by several more postings showing explanatory images.

The main explanatory text will thus be posted at the close of this series of postings and separately from the images. There is no alternative since the images take so much memory. Click the images to see them in larger size.

We examined as many online photographs online as we could find. This decipherment relies primarily on our tracing of the dots and marks found on a photograph at the non-profit Archaeological and Historical Conservancy, Inc. ["AHC"], 4800 SW 64th Ave Suite 107, Davie, FL 33014, found at Menotrix.com at http://www.mnemotrix.com/ahci_web/projects.html. Their Miami Circle photograph is found online at http://www.mnemotrix.com/ahci_web/circle2.jpg. Take a look at it and consult it when examining our decipherment.

We have no affiliation with AHC or Menotrix and publish our decipherment of the Miami Circle via that photograph as "fair use", especially because it is essential to show that we are using actual and not imagined dots or marks.

We now have finished an extremely difficult, but in result and consequences -- important -- decipherment of the Miami Circle at Brickell Point in Miami, Florida, U.S.A., a decipherment which is substantially revised from one we made ca. a decade ago, for reasons given in the text explanation to this image, which will be presented at the end of this series of postings.

Because of the large size of the multiple graphic images, we have divided this posting into several postings so that, for example, readers who can not access the large color decipherment images can presumably access the black and white images, which use far less memory. In either case, click on the images to see them in actual size since they appear in reduced size in the blog postings.

The first Miami Circle posting -- the present posting -- is the basic color decipherment 2015, which will be followed by the second Miami Circle posting with the decipherment 2015 in black and white, followed by several more postings showing "wider" explanatory images.
