Giza’s Causeways – Proof of Concept Solar Study



Note: CAD dimensional extractions from AERA Giza Mapping Project image


Khufu: 13° 21’ 7.3686” (13.35205°) north of east
Khafre: 13° 19’ 31.1578” (13.32532°) south of east
Menkaure: 0° 59’ 3.2272” south of east

Average from east: 13° 20' 19.27" (13.338685°)



Note: modern sunrise times and dates for Causeway alignments
Note: Revised Image above updates original image.


Khufu: 05:25 18APR 13.1° north of east 05:22 21APR 14.0°, 05:26 22AUG 14.2° north of east (Menkaura Equinox Line 89.8°)
Khafre: 06:03 24OCT 13.0° south of east 06:33 18FEB 13.3°, 06:03 25OCT 13.5° south of east (Menkaura Equinox Line 89.8°)
Menkaure: 20MAR/22SEP 0.3° south of east 05:59 20MAR 89.8°, 05:44 24SEP 0.2° south of east 89.8°

Modern sunrise times and dates for Equinoxes and Solstices at Khufu’s Pyramid Temple Threshold 29.9792°N 31.1359°E 29.9792°N 31.1342°E:

Vernal Equinox: 06:00 20MAR 90.2° 05:59 20MAR 89.8°
Summer Solstice: 04:54 21JUN 62.1° 04:54 19JUN 62.1°
Autumnal Equinox: 06:00 22SEP 89.1° 05:44 24SEP 89.8°
Winter Solstice: 06:47 22DEC 116.8° 06:48 24DEC 116.8°

Note: 116.8° - 62.1° = 54.7° / 4 = 13.675° = 13° 40' 30" ∴ +/- 0° 20’ of dimensionally notated results extracted from AERA Giza Mapping Project image above.

While not ”set at specific angles of 14 degrees North and South for Khufu and Khafre, and 0 degrees in the case of Menkaure”, arguably adequate for additional study. (Magli utilizes the approximation “~” at ”28°” notations…analogous implication for 14°.)


ETA: [Update: 4MAR19] Revisions: Update Post Subject, Strike-outs and/or “red” notations.
