Ancient observatories of the world. And their purpose
Many ancient observatories were built according to a single plan.Who built them and why? Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Abu Simbel in Egypt, Easter island structures, Machu Picchu, Stonehenge in the UK, Tiwanaku, Newgrange in Ireland, Arkaim in Russia and many others.
PhD in Physics and Mathematics Nikolay G. Bochkarev states that the space of these objects has some common features. They have a circular or pyramidal structure, a clear orientation to the cardinal points. The solstices and equinoxes were important points of reference for annual cycles.
What method did the Mayans use to achieve high accuracy in observing celestial bodies? Why did they make long and narrow slits in observatories - "sights"? Why were windows of observatories constructed to look at sunrise during the days of the spring and autumn equinoxes, summer and winter solstices? The Mayan's understanding that everything has a cycle.
Scientists agree that observatories built before our era were giant devices that allowed to track the key points of the Sun's movement, conduct observations of the planets of the Solar system, determine the location and coordinates of celestial bodies, and record all astronomically important events in space. Why was it necessary to record these events?
Observation of constellations and the relative position of stars. The effect of the precession - why does 'the spring point' happen a little earlier every year? The direction of the "precession drift" and the change of epochs - what does the cosmic clock warn us about? The cycle of 25920 years.
What do scientists say?
Professor of history, Giorgio de Santillana, writes in his book that the position of the Sun among constellations is like a clock.
How long does the Sun stay within the boundaries of one constellation? The days of the vernal equinoxes as the starting point of the precession cycle.
This countdown was important because it allowed us to know in advance about the cycles of climate change. For this purpose, the ancients built many observatories to observe celestial bodies.
Why are we being told that the ancient knowledge of the peoples of the world is "primitive beliefs"?
What is happening to the Sun now?
As you know, everything in the Solar system lives according to certain rhythms, cycles and laws.
