Attributed to the Anunnaki
The stone structures are clearly an observatory and calendar.
Particularly showing the quarter days of the year,
the two Solstices and both Equinoxes, as festival days.
The site has a near level horizon about 3 miles away in most directions. It is at latitude 51 degrees, 17 minutes North.
At Stonehenge, the Suns azimuth (degrees clockwise from North) of rising on Summer Solstice day is about 51 degrees.
The Great Pyramid, Giza, the angle is 51 and a half degrees. The Sphynx, and the 3 Giza Pyramids are also attributed to the Anunnaki, being constructed long before the Egyptian Civilisation was founded. (Ref. Zecharia Sitchin, The Earth Chronicles).
I believe that Stonhenge is the most pre-eminent site in the world, being the key to our understanding of our place in the Universe, and also the key to our future. Possibly it can be used to calibrate our orbit of the Sun, to determine time, and link that to the procession of the Equinoxes, the 26,000 Astrological Great Year, and 2000+ year Ages, like the approaching Age of Aquarius.
Soon, in about 150 years, the Equinox Sunrise will occur in Aquarius, instead of Pisces as at present; (interestingly we still start the zodiac with Aries - and that is 30 degree shifted from real Astronomy, also not correct either, if it is The Age of Aquarius approaching. This is determined by which contellation the Sun rises in, at the Spring Equinox, which is subject to the phonomena of procession, causing a kind of real-star-time, to travel backwards through the zodiac).
To quote Prof. Gerald S. Hawkins book, Stonehenge Decoded:
"The Sun moves from North to South as June moves to December. Only on 2 days of the year - the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes does it rise and Set due East and West. Because of heavenly complexities involving factors like the oubliquity of the Ecliptic, the Sun swings anually from a summer declination (or celestial sphere of latitude) of +23.5 North to a corresponding winter declination of -23.5 South. That declination shift is a sizable 47 degrees, but because of the facts of spherical geometry, the angular variation in earthly viewing can be much larger. At the latitude of Stonehenge, sunrise goes from a compass direction of 51 degrees, almost North East, down to 129 degrees, almost South East, at midwinter.
Because the angle, or tilt of the earths axis with respect to its orbit plane changes with time, the point on the horizon at which the sun rises on midsummer morning moves, very slowly. For the last 9000 years this movement has been to the right along the horizon at a rate of about 2/100ths of a degree per century (1 degree in 5000 years) So the oblquity of the ecliptic is decreasing. The suns azimuth of rising is increasing, which means that its solstice horizon point of rising is moving eastward."
For a definition of terms used visit
on the "weather underground" site.
The Solstice positon and alignments can be dated, because the sun solstice position gradually moves with time. (ref. Sir Norman Lockyear). This is true for other monuments throughout the World, for example, at The Pathenon in Athens, and Karnak in Egypt, where later rebuilds are shifted to a new angle from the position of the earlier foundations. At Stonehenge the Heel stone was adusted, and the Avenue widened to the East.
Perhaps the Anunnaki (ancient visitors from the planet Neibru, which has a 3600 year orbit of the sun), were trying to leave an indication of their return date. - By means of the misnamed Slaughter stone. Unfortuantely this has fallen, but, standing would also align with the height of the horizon, like the bowing (heel) stone, on the axis of the monument.The positon marked by the slaughter stone is now being approched by the summer solstice sunrise. The sun now stands full tangent on the horizon to the right of the bowing stone, but was correctly aligned around 1560 BC. The final stage of Phase III Stonehenge, seems to have been the removal of 2 gateway stones, flanking the Avenue, and the erection of the "slaughter" Stone.The Anunnaki are believed to have left the Earth, having very little further contact with humans, about 1550 BC. After which there is no more Megalithic Stone building, anywhere in the world. (with the much more recent exception of the Easter Island stones).
On-Axis Photos show the standing heel or bowing stone, just touching the horizon, and the fallen and mis-named "Slaughter" Stone, the centre of which may be close to the alignment intended.
The re-occurance of the planet Neibru may be due in about 900 years. A bright star, emerging from the constalation Centauri, or near Orion, and travelling comet like west to east accross the solar sytem passing through the asterioid belt, between Mars and Saturn. The appearence growing into a red crescent.
The Equinox sun will always rise due east. At Stonehenge it was marked, by a now fallen Bluestone Trilithon.
Probably the whole of Stonehenge was inspired by the Annunaki, first visiting 500,000 years ago, or their decendants, who had their knowledge, as passed down to humans (with kingship) after 10,000 BC - even supervised over 1000 years by one of them, aka Thoth. The Anunnaki may be able to arrive here, many years before their planet is visible.
It seems that Stonehenge was re-engineered to fit a shift from Taurus to Aries circa 3500 BC and again around 1550 BC.
Perhaps able to predict eclipses. A solid example, understanding the motions of the Earth and Moon.
There were 3 concrete circles in the car-park, just over the road from the monument, thought to be Totem Pole holes, and the oldest evidence of man at this site, or in UK, dating from after the end of the last ice-age, around 11000 BC.
The structures built evolved over many years. There is evidence of a ditch and bank of chalk, about 6 to 9 feet high surrounding it, open at the North East. It is probable that only the initiated few were allowed into the circle, to make observations.
The simple structure of Stonehenge 1 was superceeded by the giant Sarcen Stones, Trilithons and circle. These provided fixed, well defined and sheltered viewing positions for the major events of Equinox and Solstice.
The large Sarcen sandstones used and shaped to build the main structures, and all but one of the trilithons, were collected from the nearby Malborough Downs. These Grey weathers stones were deposited as a result of glaciation. Bluestones were imported from the Prescelly Mountains, Pembrokeshire, Wales, for their special properties, and mostly flame shaped. The Bluestones were originally positioned in the 56 Aubery holes which encircle the monument, just inside the bank and ditch. To clarify this:
