In a month that has seen disclosures of the fossil of a tropical parrot in Siberia from at least five million years ago in the Miocene era, this elegant Paleolithic chic shows that our deep history (some 2,000 generations ago, give or take) contains many unexpected surprises. Read more
Ancient Earthworks in the Ukraine may be the biggest Solar Observatory in the World.
More than thirty man-made hills with different forms were located in an area of about twenty square kilometers. And the hills are not scattered randomly. They are organized by mathematical proportions and create the sacred geometry of Bezvodovka.
Ancient astronomers could use the observatory, not only as a solar calendar and for holding associated religious rites, but also as a tool to calculate the lunar cycle known as the Meton cycle, as well as to study the motion of the planets and stars in the sky. Long-term observation of the motion of celestial bodies, and knowledge of the laws of celestial mechanics, allowed the determination of the date of the lunar and solar eclipses and even the displacement of the equinoxes on the horizon due to variations in the Earth’s axis called precession.
