Hello MDaines:

There appears to be confusion regarding the significance of the points of location of Khufu’s Eastern Boat Pit, Nazca and Easter Island. Stated plainly, there is no relevance of these three points, or any other three points on Earth (or any other spheroid). Any three points will unavoidably be connected by either a Great Circle (a plane that divides the full circumference of Earth, with its center-point at the Earth’s axial midpoint), or a Small Circle (a plane that divides the planet into unequal portions not passing through Earth’s axial midpoint).



Great Circles and Small Circles
