Hello Everyone and Welcome Back!
What I would like to show today was or trip to a possible ancient compass found in the Boulder Batholith just South of Boulder Mt. on North Whitetail Rd.
This was the location of the site we visited, we were checking for Winter Solstice alignments with the top point and also another site said to have these alignments as well within 20 yards of this site!
We arrived at about 7:30 a.m. as sunrise was at 8:04 a.m. That being said we didn't see the sun come over the mountains till about 8:30 a.m.
Side view of the site!
As you can see the clouds were not behaving but we were still able to get calculations. If this site has any alignments I wouldn't be surprised if they were Lunar and Solar! Something else we are working on!
We took a lot of measurements of direction the site points and then measure where the sun rose. Now we were just checking the Winter Solstice alignments and will have to go back re-measure again on the Spring Equinox!
From the map we found online we could not collaborate their results, in fact we were able to completely disprove the given directions on that map, even had a completely random line drawn on it!
Never trust, always verify!
This is the top of the standing stone with what appears to be a pointer on top. Now I will disclose that in the rocks that have fallen over in front of it we were able to match where the stone broke to form the point. Also we examined the point to see if it was part of the rock or added. Our conclusion was that it was part of the rock and could not be removed or moved in any way.
Now, I am no archeologist but I can read a compass! We took lots of pictures and are still working on a map to see if there is any actual alignments to this site or not! I'm sure you can see the implications of both! We need to determine if this a natural formation or something that was constructed!
So as we speak I am working on developing a accurate map of the suns cycle and it's relation to this site. If anyone is adept at this please contact me!
One thing we did find interesting was when we went to other sites in the area that morning we discovered something, well interesting! All sites we measured had the same general compass directions. That being between 123 and 127 degrees SE!
Held this directly pointing they way of the site to show. Weird thing is a lot of sites have this exact or close same alignment. Prof of Natural Features or Prof of some kind of alteration to the sites?!
What do you think??
With that being said most would say they are natural formation that all rose to the surface facing the same general direction, just like how you see rock layers that always run the same way etc. That doesn't mean however that these sites were modified by whomever was around or it just adds to the natural theory.
More to come as we get a map made!
See you next time, and make sure to let me know what you think!
I apologize that I can not show you the map we were working off of because of copyright issues, so we will be making our own map show if any, alignments to this site!
Here is some more sites we explored that day and their compass directions! Enjoy!
Notice the Sun hits directly on the stacked stone to the left, lighting it up in the morning! This site also had the same general direction!
We also found these two interesting formation, thought we had found another example of Pink Granite mixed in but it was just how it had weathered when we got up close just like another site that looks familiar to it!
You can see how it is protected by the stone above, thus changing how that rock will show erosion!
Also a nice little Dolmen!
Check out the small support rocks holding up one side! Very interesting!
Well I hope you have enjoyed our journey of discovery up here in the Boulder Batholith of Montana!
Don't forget to download your free Google Earth File!
It has tons of great areas to go explore with pictures and locations! I will be updating this soon as we have many new sites to share with everyone!
Go exploring and let us know what you think!
History is Shifting Folks and We Are Just Along For the Ride!
See you next time, with some Maps!
