Hello MDaines:

Apologies for not replying sooner; I have revisited my earlier referenced Post to amend and amplify my previous observations.

With specifics to our discussion, I updated the image relating the three (3) Causeways and their modern Gregorian dates. Note that the 18APR date for Khufu’s Causeway has been amended to 21APR/22AUG.

Regarding your query: ”Has anyone checked to see where that orientation might place the origin of the ship….if it arrived across ground from the east!”; in a manner of speaking, the funeral barge transported the King from the east (land of the living) to the west (land of the dead).

It should now be clear that the three (3) Giza Pyramid Causeways align with significant solar phenomena. Khufu’s Causeway is aligned with the midpoint between the June Solstice and the March/September Equinox sunrises, as observed from the threshold of his Pyramid Temple. A lesser known phenomenon of Khufu’s Pyramid is its function as a gnomon. For approximately fifteen (15) seconds, at sunset on the day of the midpoint between the equinoxes and the solstices, a pair of triangular shadows appears on either the north or south face, heralding the event. Below is the occurrence during an April or August event:
