Carl Sagan shows very succinctly demonstrates how the Egyptian use of the Benben, obelisks or tekhenu could easily accomplish this. Sadly only Eratosthenes got the credit and not the builders of the scientific instruments thousands of years prior.
The name tekhenu which means "to pierce" as in "to pierce the sky". but consider piercing the earth "as above so below" and the truth is revealed through geometry ;)
The great Pyramid was caped with a Benben or cap stone, referred to as the "all seeing eye" because below it is the geometrical secrets of the earth moon and sun encapsulated in the stone monument.
Eratosthenes (276 BC - 194 BC) was the chief librarian at the Library of Alexandria, it is very pleasurable that he got the idea from records in the library that we sadly no longer have access to because it burnt down in 48 BC.
Luckily though, The Great Pyramid is a Geometric Model of The Earth! So it vindicates the Egyptian's as having the Astronomical and mathematical capabilities of being far more than Sun worshipers.
The Astronomer Priests were studying the sun not worshiping it, But the lay people could not comprehend mathematics so the priests used allegories to conceal and embellish their work otherwise they would have never gained support to make and build these magnificent instruments and structures. The Study not only unraveled the secrets of the universe but provided economic prosperity through the timing of seasons for planting etc. But we know most of the priestly customs and were kept secret to the uninitiated. I am strongly convinced the initiated were more astronomers then priest.
