Comments on panorama:

Cairn marks centre of 60'0 diameter circle of standing stone erected from time before the Pyramids.
These stones unlike Stonehenge were recycled and can now be found in the foundations of buildings nearby.
This site was restored in 2008 and started spinning a year earlier in preparation for 11/11/11 and 21/12/12.
The site is open all year and is well worth a visit at any time of each day. Sunrise and Sunset are of course very special times for those attuned to Cosmos and Solar System.
