How to visualize the star distances as depicted in the Senenmut tomb ceiling. Compare to thee distance between the pyramids: In the true Orion belt star distances we would find the Mintaka triangle to the left of the Giza pyramid(Menkaure).

The date you have for the Summer Solstice is wrong. For this year(2551 BC) the date is July the 15th. On the flat horizon the Sun rises at an azimuth of 61.44 degrees. The complementary angle is thus 28.56 degrees. Given the surrounding low hills the true azimuth is a bit larger, but the complementary angle would not reach 26.57 degrees. I don't think this was the design.

I just what to point out that the astronomy software knows nothing about the surrounding landscape. It depicts the geometric horizon and the apparent horizon at a given place given a flat landscape. If you want to observe the true horizon you would have to use the azimuth you computed on Google Earth and calculate the altitude of observation. After finding this you would have to enter it into the

Here I present the pyramid distance and star brightness to pyramid height relation. The true slope of each pyramid is depicted. The triangles below it retain the same slope. The distance of the outer pyramids in relation to the central one is depicted in scale with the base length of each pyramid. The relative distance depicted in the right triangles is taken to be equal and the distance o

e) Sphinx meaning and possible correlations, Leo at Zep Tepi idea Wikipedia on the OCT: QuoteAn argument put forward by Bauval and Hancock to support the Orion Correlation Theory is that the construction of the Great Sphinx was begun in 10,500 BC; that the Sphinx's lion-shape is a definitive reference to the constellation of Leo; and that the layout and orientation of the Sphinx, the Giza

Although maybe not part of OCT, the causeway orientation aligning with Sunrise at the equinoxes and mid summer/winter was brought up in "The Message of the Sphinx(authors: Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock)". The problem here, is that although the Giza pyramid design and the shafts point to a stellar notion/theology, here we have a celestial encoding that deals with the Sun. Isn't thi

Hello Poster Boy, If we want to really understand how Orion relates to Giza we need to look at geographical data that proves that Giza is a miniature plan of a group of mountains. We will uncover the true accuracy of the Giza plan when go North and look at the prototypes. BR Spiros

Hello cladking, I think it is possible that Osiris represented Rigel and Horus represented Betelgeuse. "Horus placed his eye in the hand of his father osiris." Well if he has light blue eyes, then the blue star at the position of his hand near the belt might in fact be Alnilam. Just my two cents. BR Spiros

The problem routes from assumptions. The assumption that the Giza pyramids were designed and erected by men of the early bronze age using the scientific and mathematical knowledge of their time and implementing rough naked-eye surveying. This is not the case. We need to study the pyramids using our latest GPS and astronomical information and see where it goes from there.

Hello Scott, I just want to point out that the proper motion of all three Orion Belt stars is small. This means that the O1-O2-O3 angle will not converge to the 168.54 degree G1-G2-G3 angle. Turning the time back to 10,633 BC(stars at lowest altitude) will not make things much better. On the other hand when it comes to orientation, as I have pointed out in another post, the Giza pyramids do no

Hello Scott, I am afraid I don't buy the pole shift idea. There is no need to look at something so extreme, something that has not been proved scientifically. There is a simpler explanation for the shaft layout. If we do not adhere to the Sirius/Kochab proposition, we can easily see the pole star and Orion moving from the King's Chamber to the Queen's Chamber not by changing the epoch, but rat

QuoteSpiros, I am in contact with Glen Dash. His data on Menkaure, which he privately shared with me, and the data used by Orofino and Bernardini are not contradicting each other. I refer you to their paper to get the details. I never claimed they contradict each other. Orofino and Bernardini use a map, and maps can be deceiving. Like his Figure 1 is deceiving because no star fall at any pyramid

One might ask, what about Orion rising? At Alnitak geometric rise, when all 3 belt stars are above the horizon, the azimuth between Alnitak and Mintaka is 12.991 degrees. Nowhere near the Giza G3 to G1 value.

Hello Thunderbird, The Wayne Herschel Orion/Pleiades Star maps don't seem to be very accuurate but they may be valid in a symbolic kind of way. In my book "Thebe Andromedia Estia" written in Greek I get into encoded distance star maps in Egypt. I also get into the Andromedian posibility. Wayne Herschel's thus depiction of Saqqara as Andromeda is interesting. His work in no way inter

Hello Thanos5150, So that brings us to the fourth point, the star shafts. The Khufu pyramid was erected at about 2580 BC. For this date the star alignment errors are as follows: North King Chamber shaft slope error(Thuban) Dph = +1° 25' 9" North Queen Chamber shaft slope error(Kochab) Dph = +0° 44' 5" South King Chamber shaft slope error(zeta Orionis) Dph = -0° 24' 34"

I put forth a second argument when debating with Bauval on this board. It is the relative distance ratio between the central and outer Orion Belt stars. This ratio is: r = 0.976268 But if we multiply this with the height of Khufu's pyramid we have: h' = h x r = 146.71 m x 0.976268 = 143.228 m The height of the Khafre pyramid is not far from this number at 143.56 meters. So did the arc

Bauval's explanation for this discrepancy is that the Egyptian surveyors could not accurately measure the relative star distances and angles and depict them correctly on the ground. This means that the architects of the Gizamids did not know the relative astronomic data with accuracy. Well as many have pointed out, if this the case then why were they so accurate in planning the Khufu pyramid b

Hello Scott, The queen pyramids and the pyramid width design is surely two issues that need to be explained, but let's first start looking at the points brought up by OCT. Let's start with the first point. The similar triangles. We take the apexes of the 3 Gizamids and the position of the 3 Belt stars at about 2550 BC. Bauval claims that similar triangles are created by the 2 sets of 3 po
