The Sky Map on the Brickell Point Miami Circle 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.?
Coming up in the next posting.

    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."
