This is an important finding.

Based on Glen Dash's computations regarding the placement of the 3 pyramids we can look into this idea with fresh data.

G1 to G2 azimuth = 43.302°
G3 to G2 azimuth = 31.838°

Index of Refraction = sin(43.302°)/sin(43.302°) = 1.3001

It looks to me like they used an approximation of 13/10.

Index of Refraction of ice at 0 Deg for a wavelength of 740 nm is 1.306.

Multiple paths to follow:

1. red + ice = Mars => Mars year encoded in Giza(Clive Ross)
2. ice => ice age => 10,500 BCE Giza to Orion orientation alignment(Robert Bauval)
3. ice => larger latitude + larger altitude => mountain peak at larger latitudes..
