Arthur's Seat The 1/2 (0.5) way markers   This investigation continues with the sacred site of Arthur's Seat. The coordinates of which are: 55.94° North by 3.16° West   At this latitude the northern most sunrise, at Summer Solstice, rises at: 47.0° North of East and the Sun sets at 47.0° North of West.   The southern most sunrise, at Winter Solstice, rises at: 43.6° South of East and the Sun sets at 43.6° South of West.   The total degrees of change between mid summer and mid winter therefore equals: 47.0 + 43.6 = 90.6° This is almost exactly one quarter of a 360° circle (full horizon)   The diagram below shows the above calculations in a radial format (eagle's view / top down). Included are the 1/2 (0.5) way markers from exactly East and West (both as 0°). 47 x 0.5 = 23.5° 43.6 x 0.5 = 21.8°   In yellow are the dates these alignments occur relative to Arthur's Seat. (for 2013)* see end of page In green are the number of days between each respective alignment. Arthur's Seat Organic Template : 1/2 way markers Version   The calculations that create the above diagram are based on knowing the true east/west axis. The 1/2 (0.5) way markers being exact midpoints (* relative to horizon) between the northern most and southern most risings and settings and the true east/west axis. The shorter section in which there is 31 days indicates that the season in which it occurs (Winter solstice to Spring equinox) is where the Perihelion is currently positioned (Jan 4th).   - - -   Another version of marking the seasons from Arthur's Seat would be to have the markers equally spaced from northern most to southern most risings and settings. The total degrees of change between mid summer and mid winter is 90.6°: 90.6° / 4 = 22.65°   *This number connects Arthur's Seat to Stonehenge* (with only a 22.65° - 22.62° = 0.03° difference)   Here is the diagram for the equally spaced markers at 22.65° increments. (for 2013)* see end of page Arthur's Seat Geometric Template : 1/2 way markers Version   The result produces further symmetry in the number of days between the 22.65° marker points, and also reveals the number 33 at the heart of this time template. Also worth noting is that all of the dates of the solstice and equinoxes fall on the 21st in the Gregorian month (for: Mar, Jun, Sep & Dec).   Extra note: on the evening of 22nd April going into 23rd April there is the Lyrid meteor shower, for more information see this external link: earthsky.org This coinsides with the alignment of 33 days after geometric spring equinox in the above graphic, which initiates the next section of the year on 23rd April ~ lasting 59 days upto Summer Solstice.   To see how this angle of 22.65° keys into the structure of Stonehenge:   18th March 2013 - Sun rises 90.3 degrees ( the day that's closest to 90 )   19th March 2013 - Sun rises 89.8 degrees ( the day that's closest to 90 )
