astro picture for the day

This ancient Stonehenge like ruin is called Rujm El-Hiri.  It's a Canaanite Stonehenge of almost 3000 B.C.

Here's Nabta Playa, a Nubian Stonehenge.  Some date this much earlier.  Maybe, but seems few rigorous archaeologists get down there to do serious science on it.

Regardless, we have clear evidence for astrotheology(these solar/lunar observatories were almost certainly mixed with religion along with learning about the heavens), from Nubia all the way to England with Stonehenge.
