Chaco Canyon as part of a global alignment.

As for the maps studied by Charles H. Hapgood, the presence of those geodetic (and symbolic?) reference points seems to indicate that a brilliant civilization travelled throughout the world during the tenth millenary Before Christ.




We notice that:

The megalithic sites of Stonehenge (Great Britain) and of Carnac (France) are situated on the first circle. The site of Mohenjo-Daro (Pakistan) is also located on this circle.

The ancient Chinese observatory of Gaocheng (area of Luoyang) and the site of Angkor Vat (Cambodia) are situated on the second circle.

The remarkable solar observatory of Chaco Canyon (USA, New-Mexico), the Maya cities of Uxmal (Mexico), of Tikal (Guatemala) and of Copan (Honduras) and, finally, the Peruvian sites of Nazca and of Machu Picchu are found on the third circle.

Easter Island (Pacific Ocean) is crossed by the fourth circle.

This order can be inverted if you choose the antipode of the point X as pole. This antipode Y is situated in the Austral Islands (French Polynesia) on the Tropic of Capricorn, near the Raïvavae Island, where statues looking like those of Easter Island were discovered.


In other words, each of those eleven sites can be associated with a very easy to be found star the declination of which equalled, in 9650 BC, the latitude of the place in question.

A skywatcher in Carnac could, at the time observe the zenith passage of Alpha Serpentis (Unukalhai).
In Stonehenge, the zenith star was Alpha Bootis (Arcturus).
In Mohenjo-Daro, the zenith culmination of eta Pegasi (Matar) could be watched.
On the site of Angkor Vat, Alpha Virginis (Spica) was observed in the zenith.
Someone in Gaocheng could admire the zenith culmination of Alpha Ursae Majoris (Dubhe).
In Chaco Canyon, the star was Gamma Ursae Majoris (Phecda).
In Uxmal, Tikal and Copan, the zenith stars were, respectively, Alpha Scorpii (Antares), Delta Sagittarii (Kaus Media) and Dzeta Sagittarii (Ascella).
In Machu Picchu, the zenith star was Alpha Piscis Austrini (Fomalhaut).
In Nazca, Alpha Pavonis was observed in the same way.
In Easter Island, the zenith culmination of Alpha Hydrae (Alphard) could be watched.
