The Great Avebury Challenge - Avebury Stone #10 Right Side Tracing and Black & White Trace

The Great Avebury Challenge - Avebury Stone #10 Right Side Trace and Stars by Andis Kaulins

This is the tracing result for the right side of Avebury Stone #10. As predicted, the right side of Avebury #10 (viewed henge-outwards) marks stars to the right of the stars marked on the front side of Avebury Stone #10.

The right side marks the stars extending to the Autumn Equinox and the Celestial Meridian ca. 3000 BC. The stars marked begin at the top with stars today assigned to Boötes, Corona Borealis and Coma Berenices, as well as the North Galactic Pole and the Galactic Meridian.  Marked in the middle are stars  we assign today to Serpens Caput, Virgo, Libra, and the front stars of Scorpio. Also marked in the middle are the Autumn Equinox, Ecliptic and the Celestial Equator. Marked at the bottom are the middle and back stars of Scorpio, as well as stars of Lupus, Centaurus and Crux, as well as the Ecliptic Meridian and Galactic Equator. Note how the major astronomical parameters define the borders of the stellar region portrayed. Make sure you view the corresponding star map in the next posting. It is an education in the astronomy of Avebury.
