It needs investigating using astronomy software. It works out.
The Giza layout(the three main pyramids) here does not correspond to stars it corresponds to planets. Once again astronomy software reveals the intended date(s).
Also, as I stated one needs to come up with the ancient calendar, of the year in question. In other words to compute when is the 15th day of Peret.
I just want to add here that there are different things that we should keep in mind when finding encoded ancient references.
In the Hall of Maat site someone pointed out that Belmonte/Lull were incorrect in associating the Mooring Post with Arcturus. Looking into it I noticed that at the time of Khufu there was an alignment of Thuban with Capella. So it does seem that the Mooring Post in the form of a large 'pole' represents the Capella - Aldebaran direction. We should be cautious to what researchers/Egyptologists propose regarding ancient Egyptian constellations.
In the Hall of Maat site I also read some pyramid texts that refer to:
Thou art standing, Osiris; thy shadow is over thee, Osiris
It then dawned on me that standing, while it refers to passing the Meridian in the South, at the same time it dictates that the best time to see a shadow is at night, preferably Midnight and with no Moon. In some way this could also refer to a New Moon. I am not saying though that this is relevant to what the Westcar Papyrus is encoding.
Then there is the question of older periods of time encoded, Zep Tepi etc.
I find this interesting:
because it relates to some things I have been looking into.
