Cody Garlock Investigating Archeologists' Claims "I believe that the pillars are meant to point toward the location of sunrise on the equinoxes and solstices." The middle column is pointing at
an angle to 90°. The sun on both of the equinoxes rise at an azimuth close to 90°. The column on the left points at an angle of 65°. During the summer solstice the sun rises at an azimuth close to 65° The right column points at an angle 116°. During the winter solstice the sun rises at an azimuth close to 116° Claim One Claim One Support Claim One Evidence " I believe that this opening (at an azimuth of 180
and an altitude of just over 79 ) is designed to mark
a day of celebration in April, before the planting
season began." The date is April 14 400 AD The time of year affects how high in the sky the sun is at transit because the Earth is tilted and it affects the sun. Claim Two Evidence(Cont) Support Claim Two Evidence "I think the opening directly over the center of the floor marks the days of the year when the sun is directly overhead at transit" The date is July 23, 400 AD The azimuth is 145 degrees
The altitude is 89 degrees The sun only gets directly overhead at two locations on Earth, Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn Claim Three Evidence(Cont) Evidence(Cont) Evidence(Cont) Spring Equinox Summer Solstice Fall Equinox Winter Solstice The date is March 20, 400 AD The azimuth is 89°
The altitude is -0° The azimuth is 64°
The altitude is -0° The date is June 22, 400 AD The date is September 21, 400 AD The Azimuth is 89°
The Altitude is -0° The date is December 21, 400 AD The Azimuth is 114°
The Altitude is -0° 65° 90° 116° Claim Four Support Evidence Evidence "I have discovered that this marker(at 107° azimuth) aligns to the(very bright) star(as it rises)" Month Time
July 4:32(am)
August 2:30(am) September 12:28(am)
October 10:30(pm)
November 8:28(pm)
December 6:30(pm) The star rises during the night for only part of the year because of Earth's rotation and orbit. The date is September 27, 400 AD The Azimuth is 106°
The Altitude is 0° Claim Five Support Evidence Evidence(Cont) Evidence(Cont) "The center stone is a North Star pointer!" Claim Six Support Evidence Evidence(Cont) "If the turtle is really Orion, I believe that the other carving may represent a planet that was near Orion on the night the battle ended." Date(March 4, 445 AD) The planet Mars The constellation Orion The planet and year that seem to be most likely is the planet Mars and the year 445 A.D. Its this year because Mars its closets to it, while in 446 A.D. there aren't any planets close to it. I believe the planet is Mars because, Mars in mythology is known as the god of war Mars moves counter-clockwise while the stars move clockwise. This is because viewing from Earth the stars apparent motion is because of our rotation and revolution. Mars movement is different because it has its own orbit and rotation. Claim Seven Support Evidence "I believe that the circle crossed by a bar, near Draco's head in the carving, represents a planet." The planet Mars The constellation Draco Mars might be the planet represented, because its the only planet that is across from Draco throughout the whole year. Planets can only be seen in the sky, when there orbit comes closets to Earth's. Claim Eight Support Evidence "The carving may represent the path of the planet mars through the stars." The diagram is showing the orbit of planet Mars and planet Earth. Mars orbit appears to go around Earth and that is what causes the "looped snake." The altitude is 180 degrees
The azimuth is 79 degrees ० The date is May 19, 400 AD The azimuth is 180 degrees
The altitude is 89 degrees The Azimuth is 1°
The Altitude is 21° The star HIP6572 There is no star at 0° azimuth and 21° altitude. The closest star is HIP6572 which is at an azimuth of 1°, and an altitude of 21° The Azimuth of Polaris is 0°
The Altitude of Polaris is 31° The star Polaris The star Polaris is at 0° Azimuth and an altitude of 31°. A pole star is a star whose apparent motion is close to one of the celestial poles. The star appears to lie directly overhead when viewed from the North or South Pole.
