Zorats Karer, also known as Karahunj is often referred to as the Armenian Stonehenge. The site is rich with stone settings, burial cists and standing stones – Menhirs. In total registered 223 stones. The heights of the stones range from 0.5 to 3 m (above ground) and weight up to 10 tons.
A Soviet tractor driver unearthed ancient belt buckles showing distinct dragon portrayals in the modern day Republic of Khakassia. The dragon’s figure is a symbol that allows us to say that Siberia has always had a set of particular, specific features as a cultural area. Dr Borodovsky believes that the Siberian dragon image were dated to the end of the first millennium BC until the second century AD. Then they vanished. Archeologist Vitaly Larichev said image of the Siberian dragon may be linked to ancient notions about the calendar and astronomy. It is known that nearby ancient astronomic observations were held at an ‘observatory’ called Sunduki in Khakassia. A Chinese dictionary from AD 200 reads: “On the day of spring equinox the dragon flies to the sky, on the day of autumn equinox it delves into abyss and covers in mud.” Read more on The Siberian Times
RAMAR-NOTE: Paleo-Seti researchers believe that ancient dragons were misunderstood technology and were in fact extraterrestrial spaceships. Could it be that these newly discovered dragon-depictions from Siberia are also connected to extraterrestrial visitations in the ancient past? Are they another proof for a worldwide global superculture? Are these beings connected to other hybrid-beings that we can find in cultures, myths and legends around the world?
The dish may show that prehistoric Egyptians already depicted the constellations now known as Orion the Hunter, the Hare, Canis Major, and Canis Minor with their ancient symbols. This would mean they were not Greek, but of Egyptian origin. Read more
An ancient Aboriginal site at a secret location in the Victorian bush could be the oldest astronomical observatory in the world, pre-dating Stonehenge and even the Great Pyramids of Giza. Scientists studying the Wurdi Youang stone arrangement say it could date back more than 11,000 years and provide clues into the origins of agriculture.”Some academics have referred to this stone arrangement here as Australia’s version of Stonehenge,” Dr Hamacher said.
“I think the question we might have to ask is: is Stonehenge Britain’s version of Wurdi Youang? Because this could be much, much older.” If the site is more than 7,000 years old, it will rewrite history and further disprove the notion that first Australians were uniformly nomadic hunter-gatherers. Scientists believe the arrangement of stones was able to map out the movements of the sun throughout the year. Read more
The world’s largest telescope will be completed this week in China and it has scientists very, very excited. With a whopping 1,640 feet (500 meter) wide dish the size of 30 football fields, the telescope will able to detect radio signals — and potentially signs of life — from distant planets.
For many people, the most exciting goal is the search for extraterrestrial life. The recent discovery of three life-friendly planets outside our solar system has rekindled discussion of whether intelligent life is unique to Earth. FAST’s sensitivity will be capable of detecting exoplanets like these in ways that other telescopes cannot. “FAST’s potential to discover an alien civilization will be five to 10 (times) that of current equipment, as it can see farther and darker planets,” Peng Bo, director of the NAO Radio Astronomy Technology Laboratory, told Xinhua.
