One of Polaris’ predecessors in the role of “North Star” is Thuban, a star in the constellation Draco the dragon. Thuban was the naked-eye star closest to the north pole from roughly 4000 BC until 1800 BC. This means that Thuban was the “guiding light” the ancients looked to for finding true north. For example, the Egyptians used Thuban to align the Great Pyramids of Giza. Neolithic British tribes used Thuban to lay out Stonehenge. And early Babylonians used astronomical records from a Thuban-centered night sky to create their highly accurate calendar.Did you know that? I learned something new today.
I also like how Roger introduces the Thuban Phenomenon:
Hey, this sounds familiar. This gives meaning to the phrase "what goes around comes around".
Read Roger's full posting here and see if there are examples of Thuban Phenomenon in your life.
