77/365 B&W Photography

A couple of days ago the latest version of the magazine turned up. I’m still reading it. But as usual, there is normally an article which sparks my interest, and I’m barely a third of the way in to the magazine.

This article is about prehistoric astronomical observatories. Not observatories as we think of them of course, but natural features which either line up naturally, or have been modified to show an astronomical events; two rocks positioned to show the rising sun on the summer solstice, less sophisticated than Stone Henge and the like, but showing an awareness unexpected for the time.

I don’t think I’m going to be going out hunting for them, but it’s interesting to think that the people from those days were interested in the sky – for very good reasons; understanding when the seasons are changing for farming and the like.

Fascinating stuff.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
