Hello engbren,

An interesting match. But we need to keep in mind that the orbit is highly eccentric and I don't know what the degree of error is. Also, There haven't been any planets discovered in this star system. Alhena's crossing the Meridian is close to that of Orion, but I don't know how it, as a star has relevance to the specific dates encoded in the Westcar papyrus. If dates are encoded, they should mark a significant event, like let's say the birth or death of a Pharaoh or his becoming King. If I remember correctly, you pointed out a date where the Moon aligns with Gemini. I think my calculations are correct because they tie into the exact time that Saturn is at a specific distance from the Earth. Saturn is also one of the stars that form the 3 Giza pyramid shape(triangle). The Moon is in fact in an interesting position and it is visually close to Saturn. I don't thus see an exact correlation with Alhena. Nonetheless, we can consider the succession of constellations of the Zodiac, Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries, etc. There are no bright stars in Cancer. At the time of Aldebaran's transit, Saturn is below the horizon. As pointed out before, Aldebaran's and Capella's upper culmination align with Thuban's lower culmination thus probably forming what the AE called the Mooring Post.

The vertical pole.

But if we look at Gemini's upper culmination, then we notice that Saturn as also the Moon have risen.
