On this 1st Anniversary of SIRIUS on the Sky Meridian at "exactly" midnight Giza local time, New Year's Eve .. I thought I'd note a few things that may be of interest to certain Earth humans. The calendar year of 2000 A.D. .. just "happens" to resonate very nicely with the polar diameter of Earth in nautical miles_and_with the circa 2000 A.D. 'sky-position' of POLARIS ... 43,200 / 2000 = 21.6 ... Grid POINT Value, POLARIS, circa 2000 A.D. Simple and elegant. 43,200 / 2Pi = 6875.493542 = polar diameter of Earth, in nautical miles. And I even have "2Pi" built-in, here .. the Grid POINT Value (Morton, 1998) of the Church at Rennes-le-Chateau, of all places. And; 2Pi is the ratio of .. the base-perimeter of The Great Pyramid of Giza, to its height. And I have the "43,200" number .. that everyone-and-his/her brother likes to mention, concerning The Great Pyramid of Giza. And .. here's a breakdown on how I got "21.6" as the Grid POINT Value for circa 2000 A.D. POLARIS ... First, I went to the "Astrolog Fixed Star List" ... http://www.hooked.net/~sidereal/astfixst.htm That's the database that has the circa year 2000 A.D. star latitudes listed according to their observed arc-distances from our ecliptic, and this database also has the star_longitudes_listed according to the "Sidereal Zodiac" .. already adjusted for Earth precession !! (Very important). The next thing I do is .. I apply the theory of Mary Anne Weaver, which I have proven, myself .. using the Orion belt-star ALNITAK as prime meridian marker for our ecliptic. I measure star longitudes from the position of ALNITAK, itself .. which is located 03 min and 10 sec, clockwise, from the_cusp_of GEMINI/TAURUS on the_Sidereal_Zodiac. If you go to that "Astrolog Fixed Star List", and if you look at the second listing from the top of the list ... that's the listing for POLARIS. Notice .. it says, 3Gem49'54" +66:05'42" This means its longitude is, moving counterclockwise, 3 degrees plus 49 minutes plus 54 seconds "into" the sign of Gemini. But; you must add-on the 3 minutes and 10 seconds for the arc-distance from the cusp .. clockwise .. to where ALNITAK is located. So; the longitude of POLARIS now becomes .. 03 deg 53 min 04 sec E.ALNITAK. For the latitude of POLARIS ... it is 66 degrees plus 5 minutes plus 42 seconds north_of_the ecliptic. The plus sign (+) means "north". Now ... I translate these numbers into "archaeo-sky matrix" format. Longitude ... 03 (deg) X 53 (min) X 04 (sec) = 636 E.ALNITAK. In this particular case, I have certain reasons for NOT going with "636" .. but, with .. "640" .. instead. 640 E.ALNITAK. Latitude .. 66 (deg) X 05 (min) X 42 (sec) = 13860 North. To make a long story short; I realize that "13824" is the logically-intended number, because .. 13824 / 640 = 21.6 .. decimal harmonic of Earth's *polar* circumference, in nautical miles. Various factors do enter-into this decision process. The key here, of course, is the resonance of "21.6" with the 21600_polar_ circumference of Earth in nautical miles. Also .. I know that the Grid LAT of Stonehenge (Munck, 1992) is .. 21600 North .. = 51 (deg) X 10 (min) X 42.35294118 (sec) North. Here are, then, the exact figures for the sky-position .. circa 2000 A.D. .. of POLARIS ... Grid LAT 66 (deg) X 05 (min) X 41.89090909 (sec) North (of the Ecliptic) .. = 13824 North (of the Ecliptic). Grid LONG 03 (deg) X 53 (min) X 4.025157233 (sec) E.ALNITAK .. = 640 E.ALNITAK. Grid POINT Value .. POLARIS .. circa 2000 A.D. .. 13824 / 640 = 21.6Comparing the Prime Meridians on Earth and Mars .. Support for the "21.6" Grid POINT Value of POLARISMunck (1992) figured-out the longitude variance between the Greenwich and the Giza (through the center of The Great Pyramid) prime meridians .. as .. 31 deg 08 min 0.8 sec. He also found (Munck, 1992) that the true "matrix" Mars prime meridian passes through the center of 'The D&M Pyramid' at Cydonia. About one year ago, as I write this, I was able to figure-out the longitude variance on Mars between the current "publicly-used" prime meridian (NASA) and the true prime meridian through the center of 'The D&M Pyramid'. I found this variance to be .. 09 deg 32 min 0.8 sec. Notice the difference between the Earth variance and the Mars variance : 31 deg 08 min 0.8 sec 09 deg 32 min 0.8 sec ------------------------------------ 21 deg 36 min 00 sec ... exactly_21.6_arc-degrees !! When did I discover this ? One_year_ago ... as we entered year 2000 A.D. SIRIUS on the Sky Meridian at Giza At Midnight on New Year's Eve of 1999/2000 Just a little more than one year ago, as I write this, SIRIUS appeared exactly_on_the Sky Meridian at_midnight_local Giza time .. New Year's Eve of 1999/2000. My Grid LONG for circa 2000 A.D. SIRIUS .. is .. 24805.02134 E.ALNITAK .. = 19 (deg) X 23 (min) X 56.76206256 (sec) E.ALNITAK. Notice .. 24805.02134 (E.ALNITAK) is a precise decimal harmonic of .. (248.0502134) .. (the Cube of 2Pi) .. the Grid POINT Value (Munck, 1992) of The Great Pyramid of Giza !!! And .. ALNITAK corresponds positionally_with_The Great Pyramid (Bauval, et al). So .. you have the year 2000 A.D. beginning just as SIRIUS_crosses_the Sky Meridian at Giza .. so at that very moment, SIRIUS is aligned perfectly with both the Sky Meridian_and_with the true Giza prime meridian on the ground !! The_Grid POINT_ of The Great Pyramid, itself, is directly_on_the Giza (ground) prime meridian, also !! Plus .. the star ALNITAK, which corresponds positionally to The Great Pyramid .. is the celestial longitude-measurement _marker_for the Ecliptical prime meridian, from-which the star-longitudes are calculated as to their archaeo-sky matrix locations. And this SIRIUS alignment happened at exactly_midnight_on New Year's Eve of 1999/2000 .. at Giza. http://hometown.aol.com/marscode/homepage1.html -- Michael Lawrence Morton (c) 2000
