Sorry if this is a naive question, but the henges were often filled with water, weren't they? That can form an artificial horizon especially in places where the land isn't completely flat. Would you still be able to see the reflections of the stars?
Regardless of the builders' intentions, the megaliths show a much more advanced knowledge of mathematics than most archaeologists will give them credit for.
