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

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, 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.

As we wrote previously, go to, Your Sky: Virtual Telescope Control Panel, Aim Point (the site developer, John Walker, a genius in his own right, is the founder of Autodesk, Inc. and co-author of AutoCAD.) Even if you do not own an astronomy software program, you can use Aim Point .... Just fill in this data at the Virtual Telescope Control Panel and check the following check marks:

    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."
