A frantic dash back to a position behind Stone 56 of the Great Trilithon on June 20th 2014 enabled me to catch the setting sun in a tiny gap in the clouds.
As predicted it sets in line with the Great Trilithon. See http://www.sarsen.org/2014/05/midwinter-solstice-sunrise-alignments.html for more details.
Please note that 4500 years ago the sun set a solar disc width further north, the horizon has trees on it, the photograph was taken from about 2.5 metres above ground and is down the side of the stone not down its centre, the stone was straightened in 1901; all these factors and others mean that I am not claiming an exact alignment to within a degree but that it is a deliberate alignment that has symbolic significance.

Don't get over excited by alignments at Stonehenge.ReplyDelete
This article from the economist shows that if you put up anything, it will align with the heavens in someway!

Which is self evident , further , there are numerous other contemporary man made structures intentionally and unintentionally aligned on something more specific in the Thom paradigm .
