Stonehenge Station Stones : Precession of the Equinoxes (Axial Precession) : A Graphic-Based Decipherment Encore

This posting explains the Stonehenge Station Stones as marking the locations of the Solstices and Equinoxes in the galactic Milky Way context of ca. 26000 years of "Precession of the Equinoxes". The more modern term for that is axial precession.

Some such new terms instituted by the International Astronomical Union would seem to generate more confusion than good. Constantly renaming things is not good science, especially when the history of astronomy is replete with the older terms, which are far better known to everyone. We say that as a dictionary author too. Increased creative but remote "jargonizing" of terminology acts as subject obfuscation, not as clarification.

At Stonehenge Decipherment Panorama 15 we wrote previously that these outer stones show that the ancients understood the ca. 26000-year cycle of Precession of the Equinoxes together with its "galactically" asymmetrical effect on the locations of the Autumn and Vernal Equinoxes in the stars (that is, the stars visible behind the Equinoxes at the time of their occurrence).

Below are our two seemingly complicated (but in fact easily understandable) graphics explaining the matter and commented in greater detail below, showing how the large rectangle at Stonehenge formed by the four station stones with its sides in a length ratio of 5 to 12 constitute a starry recordation of their understanding of the Precession of the Equinoxes.

Our images below show that the stars that the ancients used, when connected by lines, also show that same 5 to 12 ratio of the length of the shorter to the longer sides. The reader can measure them himself to check that out.

Please note, however, that only two station stones remain and whether the other two ever existed or whether the remaining mounds themselves instead of missing stones are the original markers is unclear.

The Stonehenge Station Stones show us the following galactic understanding as we have marked that same rectangle in the stars:

Stonehenge Station Stones : Precession of the Equinoxes 1

When the Summer Solstice is at Gemini and Sirius, the Winter Solstice is at ca. the top stars of the Teapot of Sagittarius, while the Autumn Equinox is at Crux, the Southern Cross, and the Vernal Equinox is at Diphda (Deneb Kaitos in Cetus). That variant position of the Solstices and Equinoxes in the stars is shown below by the lower half of the rectangle (for which reason we have cross-hatched out the top half):


Stonehenge Station Stones : Precession of the Equinoxes 2

On the other hand, when the Winter Solstice is at Gemini and Sirius, the Summer Solstice is, as expected, symmetrically at the top stars of the Teapot of Sagittarius, BUT, then the Autumn Equinox is at Fomalhaut and the Vernal Equinox is at ca. the stars alpha and beta Centauri, which both straddle the Galactic Equator, each on the other side of it, so one may have taken a middle route marked by two Aubrey Stones (and not the expected one) on top of Mound 92 at Stonehenge. That variant position of the stars is shown below by the upper half of the rectangle (for which reason we have cross-hatched out the bottom half):


TAKEN TOGETHER -- the ancients have combined BOTH variants into ONE rectangle -- those two variants explain the Stonehenge Station Stones, but it took this decipherer YEARS to figure that out, because the Stonehenge manner of recording that understanding with one rectangle it is not obvious. We first had to understand the galactic nature of Stonehenge to get it right.

As for the causes of precession, one can say that the wobble of the earth on its axis of rotation is a "cause", but of course, it is much more complicated than that, which we need not get into here. We refer generally to Milankovitch Cycles for discussion of the Earth's eccentricity, axial tilt, and precession.

Astronomers call axial tilt obliquity. As written at the Wikipedia link on Axial Tilt, "Earth's obliquity has varied between 22° 2′ 33″ and 24° 30′ 16″, with a mean period of 41,040 years."

How much the builders of Stonehenge specifically knew about "astronomy" in the formal sense of modern understanding is of course subject to discussion, but our decipherment images above suggest clearly that they understood precession of the Equinoxes to be a long-term astronomical, "galactic" cycle involving changes in the seasons respective to the stars, a development that they saw related to a ca. 24° variable of some kind.

In any case, in our decipherment view, the Station Stones at Stonehenge mark Precession of the Equinoxes, thousands of years before Hipparchus.

The Stonehenge Stone #40g Lead Cover Marks Stars Around the Galactic Center of the Milky Way Galaxy

The "lead cover" of Stonehenge Stone #40g marks stars at, near and around the Galactic Center of our Milky Way Galaxy.

At Stonehenge on site, Stone #40g is located nearby to and to the upper right of Stonehenge Stone #19, which we have previously identified as Sagittarius. That location meshes with the Center of the Galaxy identification.

Presumably, the cover was made of the heavy metal lead to show the "weight" of the presumed center of gravity in our universe while the "weighty" stone was symbolically buried underground underneath it.

The shape of the lead cover, if we have drawn it correctly, in spite of not being able to see it in entirety, is the shape of a human head facing right. It is identical in concept to the "head shape" of Stonehenge that we previously have identified as being the original shape of Stonehenge and not a perfect circle, as has otherwise long been thought to be the case by mainstream scholarship.

The ancients shaped their world view according to themselves and their own physical world, not according to precepts of geometry. That is a modern foible.


We subsequently show our decipherment of Stonehenge Stone #40g in a series of individual postings which show -- progressively -- how we "deciphered" such a stone by identifying the stone markings and equating them with comparable stars in a sky map clipped via Starry Night Pro 3.1 astronomy software. Of course, you have to know where to LOOK, which is the essence of science, LOOKING and OBSERVING, something the mainstream has done too little.

We start the graphic presentation in the next posting as:

1st - Stonehenge Stone #40g Lead Cover Decipherment as the Galactic Center

and will then proceed in the posting after that to

2nd - Stonehenge Stone #40g Lead Cover Decipherment as the Galactic Center

etc.

You may have to flip back and forth between postings to see what is happening or print out the image in this posting and then compare it to the decipherment.

Stonehenge Sarsen 29 Back Side as Perseus Surrounding Stars Family & Weaving Loom

Stonehenge Sarsen #29 has a very large mark on its back side and then, at first glance, nothing else, but close inspection shows very faint markings on the stone which via graphic software can be identified as marking the stars of Perseus and surrounding stars, thus portraying a family with mother and child, both skillfully integrated into the shape of the Milky Way at that point, plus a pet dog, equally skillfully integrated into a hole in the Milky Way by shape, plus the presumed father of the family as the weaver on an ancient weaving loom running from top to bottom on the stone representation.

We first show the most prominent lines and markings visible on the stone via our graphic software (Paint Shop Pro 7) and next to that image the sky region of comparable stars via a clip via Starry Night Pro 3.1 astronomy software. The first image is the simple version. The detailed version is the second image. The third image shows a comparable stone-marked loom from Neolithic USA.

The Back of Stonehenge Sarsen #29 and Comparable Stars
(simple version)



The henge-inward side of Stonehenge Sarsen #29 represents Perseus, Aries & Triangulum as father "weaver" with a loom. We found a similar loom represented at Perseus and surrounding stars at the Shelton Mound Complex in Alabama, USA, with the Milky Way, Andromeda and Cassiopeia as mother and child, plus domesticated dog as the empty space there in the Milky Way.

The "forked" end of the dark line angling in the middle of Sarsen 29 in ca. 1800 B.C., around the time estimated for the building of Stonehenge by archaeologists, marks one end of the right "leg" of Perseus at the Ecliptic Meridian, while the "arrowed" end of that angling dark line marks the Celestial Meridian, which combined mark the Vernal Equinox at about the Pleiades in that era. The Ecliptic is then marked by the bottom of Sarsen 29 on the ground.

The Back of Stonehenge Sarsen #29 and Comparable Stars
(detailed version)



We identified Perseus and surrounding stars as representing a weaving loom already in our book Sky Earth Native America (see the links further below), finding such an apparently Neolithic warp-weighted backstrap-type loom represented by various markers at the Shelton Stone Mound Complex near Jacksonville, Alabama, USA. Evidence of ancient seafaring? Surely.

(click on the graphic to obtain a larger original image)


Markings on stone so closely resembling an ancient loom, which is already quite a piece of complicated machinery in the Neolithic (Stone Age) era, are not likely to appear on a stone by chance, nor could the present decipherer ever hope to imagine or draw such a piece of equipment by scratch, never having had any previous loom contact whatsoever. Rather, much fundamental background reading had to be done to find out exactly what the ancients were representing and how it worked as one of man's greatest inventions.

Stonehenge Sarsen #29 Front as Orion, Gemini (Lower Twins), Taurus, Milky Way, Lepus

Stonehenge Sarsen #29 is the farthest right stone of the phalanx of four "lintel-topped" sarsens at the front of the Stonehenge henge on the main Stonehenge axis. We show our decipherment of the front side of Sarsen #29 below.

The Front Side of Sarsen #29



Comparable Stars to Prominent Lines &
Markings on the Front Side of Sarsen #29


As can be seen from the above decipherment, Sarsen #29 skillfully integrates not only the stars in this region of the sky but also the shape of the Milky Way into the sarsen sculpture. The Milky Way in this region of the heavens has a female shape which we refer to as the "Milky Way Lady" to which each reader can add their own imagination. The Milky Way is shown by the solid darker "ribbon" in bluish-lavender color in the image above. We have marked the figure of the lady by thick dark blue lines.

Sarsen #29 presents the same lady on its left front face and we have marked the main points of similarity in red both on the sarsen stone as well as on the underlying sky map. As usual, our underlying star positions are a clip from our standard astronomy software, Starry Night Pro 3.1. We stick to the older version because it better suits our purposes than the recently purchased Starry Night Pro 7, which appears to be great for avid telescope users, but appears for now to be somewhat less suited to our simple research purposes. Perhaps we are just accustomed to what we have been using for so long.

The right side of Sarsen #29 viewed from the present perspective consists principally of two male heads, one above the other. We have marked them in red only without a blue outline. The top head is crowned by the kind of full-body animal skin cap often seen by us in megalithic sculpture.

The markings at that crown of the head are stars today assigned to Taurus. The top of Sarsen #29 marks the Galactic Meridian and the crossing point there of the Galactic Equator.

That is the "opposite" Milky Way point to the crossing again of the Galactic Equator and Galactic Meridian 180 degrees removed near the stars 3 Sagittarii viz. Gamma Sagittarii (the tip of the arrow of the bow of the archer, Sagittarius) as well as 45 Ophiuchi, and Messier Objects M6 and M7 between Sagittarius and Scorpio. That is the location of the Center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

That is surely where the ancients placed the galactic center in their basic skywatcher observations. We will look at that galactic center in our decipherment of Stonehenge Stone #40g and meet those above stars again.

Although the two heads surely represent the "lower twins" of Gemini, the stars assigned in historical research to the "lower twins" by modern scholars actually correspond to the position of the head of the lady in the Milky Way, with her lower half marked by stars of Canis Minor and Monoceros.

The beard of the lower of the lower twins is marked in part by stars of Lepus.

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.

Stonehenge Decipherment Panorama 24 by Andis Kaulins - Stones 2 to 21 - Conclusion of the Perambulation

Stonehenge Decipherment Panorama 24 by Andis Kaulins - Stones 2 to 21

Panorama 24 is the stone-viewing conclusion of our Stonehenge Decipherment Perambulation, a counter-clockwise tour in which we have identified the stars represented by the sarsens and stones of Stonehenge.

The image below will send us to the next image in the next posting, and we will be taken to Marlborough, which is nearby to the Avebury Henge Stones, which we shall also be posting about in the future, but not at this time. Rather....

More proofs follow through analysis of individual stones of Stonehenge, including a stone that marks M6 and M7 near the Galactic Center. 

We are presently putting together a photobook at PixelNet covering this photo series decipherment of Stonehenge using our own photographs and accompanying text explanations. We use PixelNet because one can work with multiple photos in an editable book format, which makes ultimate formatting of the materials easier. These images are snips, which explains the "book fold" in the middle of the photos. This photograph and the accompanying text explanations are all Copyright © 2016 by Andis Kaulins. Enjoy!

Stonehenge Decipherment Panorama 20A by Andis Kaulins of The Heel Stone as Puppis ("Nessie") Canis Major Surrounding Stars

NOTICE: There are THREE images in this posting so make sure you view them all. If you want to experience the thrill of decipherment work, look only at the first two images and try your hand at doing what we have done -- our full DECIPHERMENT SOLUTION is found in the third image.

Stonehenge Decipherment Panorama 20A by Andis Kaulins -The Heel Stone as the Stars of Puppis (Apophis viz. "Nessie-Like"), Canis Major, Surrounding Stars and Milky Way (perhaps the "Nessie" legend is related to the ancient belief e.g. in Ancient Egypt concerning the deceased-consuming denizen of the deep)

If we now turn around at this point in our tour and look away from the inner henge of Stonehenge outward, we find ourselves face-to-face with the so-called "Heel Stone" ... the most famous of all the stones at Stonehenge.

If our decipherment of Stonehenge is correct and we have done our homework properly up to this juncture, the Heel Stone can only represent stars of Puppis and/or its surrounding stars in that "galactic" Milky Way region.

It turns out in fact according to our analysis that each side of the Heel Stone represents neighboring stars in that Puppis sky section, so that one side of the Heel Stone meshes perfectly with the other in portraying two directly neighboring sections of the heavens.

The "Heel Stone" side with the large incised "mouth" of Apophis pointing to the right marks the stars of Puppis, plus some stars we today assign to the constellations Pyxis, Vela and Carina.

The "Heel Stone" side with the large incised "mouth" of Apophis pointing to the left represents a few stars we today place on the border of Puppis, but mostly stars in Canis Major and Columba.

It is really incredible after these thousands of years and after the damage done to these stones by wind, weather, and humanity, that so much can still be recovered through the use of modern photography and imaging software.

Both sides of the Heel Stone have figures carved upon them, most prominent being the large-mouthed Apophis, represented by the entire stone as the galactic underworld "Nessie" that in ancient lore consumed the deceased. We already found Apophis pictured on Stone #10 at Avebury, so that this ancient belief is tradition, also at Stonehenge, prior to the Christian era.

Each stone also represents a different human head, wearing a headdress.
There are other figures on the stone as well, in our opinion, but nothing is gained for the present time by drawing attention to them as we must at this stage in the decipherment process stick to the essentials only.

These three images consisting of photographs and the accompanying tracings and text explanations are all Copyright © 2016 by Andis Kaulins, except of course for the essential underlying sky map from the astronomy software Starry Night Pro 3.1 which is of course copyrighted by Starry Night. Enjoy!

Our panorama tour of Stonehenge proceeds counter-clockwise! On that tour we identify the stars represented by the sarsens and stones of Stonehenge. Interesting proofs follow through the analysis of individual stones.

We are presently putting together a photobook at PixelNet covering this photo series decipherment of Stonehenge using our own photographs and accompanying text explanations. We use PixelNet because one can work with multiple photos in an editable book format, which makes ultimate formatting of the materials easier. These images are snips, which explains the "book fold" in the middle of the photos. This photograph and the accompanying text explanations are all Copyright © 2016 by Andis Kaulins. Enjoy!

    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."
