brindafella writes “Look out, Stonehenge, here come the Wurdi Youang rocks in the Australian state of Victoria. A semi-circle of stones as been checked by an astrophysicist from Australia’s premier research group, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), who says this arrangement of rocks is a carefully aligned solar observatory that may be 10,000 years old. It would have been created by local Aborigines, the Wathaurong people, who have occupied the area for some 25,000 years.”

    It doesn’t look like much from the picture. The only supporting statement in the article is And Its two points set in perfect alignment with the setting sun on a midsummer’s day.
    I’d like a little more supporting documentation before getting all excited about this.

    There are older stone circles in the UK than Stonehenge. The stone circles in Orkney predate Stonehenge for example, though admittedly not by as much as those claimed here.

    Hmm. This is nothing special or new – there are loads of stone circles and other landscape features which pre-date stonehenge and are astronomically aligned. Stonehenge isn’t even the best stone circle in the area.

    CSIRO astro-physicist Professor Ray Norris said the precise alignment of the stones proved it was constructed to map the sun.

    Well I agree it doesn’t look like much, but then again it’s 10,000 years old. That’s much older than most other such remnants in the world. Either way, it’s definitely not natural. Humans did this.
