Stonehenge Sarsen 29 "Orion Stone" and Stone 40g "Galactic Center Stone" Upcoming

There are two particularly awesome key stones at Stonehenge that we have not yet covered in detail.

We start with their discussion here and proceed in subsequent postings with the graphic presentation.

These two stones provide important additional possible proofs for the correctness of our Stonehenge astronomical decipherment thus far presented.

These two key stones at Stonehenge are:
  • Sarsen 29. One could call Stonehenge Sarsen #29 the "Orion Stone" because its front face (henge-outward) features stars in that part of the stellar heavens, especially Orion and the lower twins of Gemini, while its back side (henge-inwards) presents an unusual, hardly visible, very old portrayal of the stars of neighboring Perseus and surrounding stars, depicted as a human family (mother, child, pet dog) plus the presumed father sitting at a weaving loom.

    The images are so faint to see that we had to use graphic software that permitted zoom and enhancements to obtain presumed markings on the stone. Not all of our markings here may be corroborated since they are subjective, but the general resulting picture certainly will be so.

    The loom was a sensation for us also for the reason that in Sky Earth Native America, Volume 1, Edition 2, pp. 205-216 (see the link further below), we had deciphered the Shelton Stone Mound Complex near Jacksonville, Alabama to mark stars of Perseus and surrounding stars as representing an ancient likely warp-weighted backstrap-type loom that is regarded by scholars to go back to the Neolithic era. Now we find it at Stonehenge, also marking Perseus and surrounding stars in the same manner. We think it points to an ancient seafaring connection....
  • Stone 40g. Stonehenge Stone #40g could be regarded as "The Galactic Center Stone". Stone #40g and its unique lead topper viz. cover are located to the upper right of Stone 19 (looking henge-inward). We have previously identified Stone #19 as marking the stars of Sagittarius, and the galactic center is to its upper right, marked by Stone #40g.

    Indeed, we have deciphered Stone #40g to mark stars at or near the Center of the Milky Way Galaxy, our galactic centre.

    The unique lead cover for Stone 40g was arguably used to indicate the great weight of the "center of gravity" as it were at the galactic centre. We think Stone 40g itself might turn out to be a black meteorite from space, but that is pure speculation, based on the precedent of the use of such black meteorites in the ancient Near East to mark cardinal points.
We begin with our decipherment of Sarsen #29 in the next postings -- front and back -- and we will subsequently then have a series of postings on our decipherment of the stars marked on the lead covering of Stone #40g.

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically
    in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
