A 'SKY MATRIX' ...
Corroborating Weaver's Theory
Of an Alnitak Prime Meridian
... by Michael Lawrence Morton
(c) copyright 1999
In late February of 1999, I was contacted via email by Mary
who had heard me on the February 4th Art Bell radio program. I had been
on Bell's show discussing 'The Miami Circle', along with Richard
and others that night. Mary Anne wanted to know if I'd like to work on
that the Orion belt-star Alnitak is a "prime meridian marker" ... in
same way that Carl P. Munck, Sr. has re-discovered self-evident prime
meridians through not only the center of The Great Pyramid of Giza, but
through the center of 'The D&M Pyramid' at Cydonia on Mars.
[ See http://www.greatdreams.com/gem1.htm
and also www.greatdreams.com/gem2.htm
and also http://www.farshore.force9.co.uk/mlmindex.htm ]
I said ..."Yes !" ... to Mary Anne's inquiry concerning her theory of an
prime meridian marker for the ecliptic. The idea of a "sky matrix" ...
Munck's re-discovery of a "planetary matrix" (of sites and structures on
surfaces of Earth and Mars, at least) ... seemed immediately likely, if
a "celestial prime meridian" for the ecliptic could be found. Robert
noticed the correlation between the layout of the 3 main pyramids of
seen from an aerial view, and the positional pattern of the 3 belt-stars
as viewed from Earth. I was also aware that James Furia, a research
of mine, had noticed the SAME positional pattern ... in the layout of
pyramids at Teotihuacan in Mexico. To test Mary Anne Weaver's
I needed accurate coordinates for star positions (latitude and
including the star Alnitak. Mary Anne referred me to the "Astrolog Fixed

and his 'Solar Fire' computer program, corrected (adjusted sidereally))
date of January 1st, 2000. In effect, this is a "snapshot" of particular
on January 1, 2000. The significance of this date, involving elements of
"planetary matrix" and the "sky matrix", should become self-evident as I
my findings in this work of a multi-part series. I emphasize, moreover,
Alnitak prime meridian will also, simultaneously, be shown in this work
self-evident in terms of a constant 'matrix'-related reference point for
measurement along the ecliptic. In so-doing, the Alnitak prime meridian
automatically allows for the Earth precession factor, because the star
'precesses' at the same rate as the other stars, of course.
The "Astrolog Fixed Star List" data is accurate to
for the 'given' latitude and longitude positions on January 1, 2000.
of accuracy is needed in terms of the testing that I wanted to do, with
to Mary Anne Weaver's theory ... that is ... an accuracy level to at
nearest whole arc-second. This enables me to reliably test the
of a reasonable sample of these given star-positions. In all of my
using this data base, I have restricted any of my own 'adjustments' to
3/10ths of an arc-second* ... and usually quite a bit less than that ...
'given' whole arc-second, as you will see.
THE 'MATRIX NUMBERS' OF THE STAR ALNITAK
Using the data from the above-referenced "Astrolog Fixed Star List", we
that Alnitak's January 1, 2000 longitude position is given as 29 TAU 56'
and its latitude position for the same date (of course) is given as 25
37 sec South. The longitude notation means Alnitak's position on January
is 29 deg 56 min 50 sec "into" (moving counter-clockwise) the zodiac
Taurus ... or precessed (moving clockwise) by 3 minutes and 10 seconds
'zero degrees Gemini' (the precise Taurus/Gemini cusp). Recall that
positions are given to the nearest whole arc-second.
[ In case you cannot find the data of a given star (or stars) on the
list, I suggest emailing the website, to contact someone involved there

There's a good chance that someone can look-up the needed data for you.

A QUALIFICATION ...
I do make this qualification, regarding possible impact of various
precessional" star movements ... on my findings as reported here, and on
my source-data as well. I do realize that various other factors, other
Earth precession, influence movements of all stars over time. To the
my knowledge at this time, my source-data has originated with reliable
observatons in the mid-to-late 1990s. I acknowledge that I have not, for
purposes of this paper, taken into account the effects of any such
precessional" star movements since the time of any sky-observations
used for my source-data. That said, however ... I do think the following
of mine will prove to be 'self-evident' positive indications of strong
for Weaver's theory of an Alnitak prime meridian. In turn, I think this
will serve to bolster and to substantially validate Munck's findings
aspects of the apparently re-discovered 'planetary archaeomatrix'.
My first step in testing these coordinates for possible "matrix
to multiply the *numbers* of degrees X minutes X seconds ... WITHOUT
concern for "mixing units of measure". Munck's system has already proven
to work in this way. This is how this ancient matrix was evidently
this is logically how I will test these numbers.
Taking the latitude numbers 'given' for Alnitak ...
25 (deg) X 17 (min) X 37 (sec) South ...
= 15725 South.
I recognize, from working for over 6 years with the 'archaeomatrix'
by Munck, that 15725 is very close (for my parameters) to a decimal
(1/2 Pi) X 10000 ... or, 15707.96327 South ...
= 25 (deg) X 17 (min) X 36.95991358 (sec) South.
The "HALF-Pi" decimal harmonic is, in fact, an important mathematical
in the re-discovered planetary matrix. We know that the quantity (2Pi)
important, because it is the number of Radians (deg) on one
assuming "our" conventional 360 arc-degrees on one circumference ...
(2Pi) X 57.29577951 (deg) = 360 (deg).
So ... because 1/2 is the reciprocal of 2 ... it is logical that "1/2
important in this matrix.
The Great Pyramid of Giza "shows" the 2Pi factor ... its base perimeter
designed to be exactly "2Pi" times its original height. Munck (1991) has
shown that its original height was apparently 480.3471728 Feet
capstone) and its original base perimeter was 3018.110298 Feet.
[ For more information on Munck's work, and for info on obtaining his
published newsletters, books, videos, & audio cassettes ... go to ...
Go to the "Radio Bookstore" section there ].
So ... Alnitak's Grid LAT is ... (1/2 Pi) X 10000 South.
As for its longitude ... I first will test its January 1, 2000 actual
longitude 'as given', *in* the sign of Taurus ...
29 (deg) X 56 (min) X 50 (sec) TAURUS ...
= 81200 TAURUS.
I know, again from working with the material for a number of years, that
is a very important mathematical quantity in the re-discovered
The number 81 is the Square of 9, and 9 is "our" highest integer. And,
is the multiplied product of 81 times the Cube of 10.
And, 81000 is exactly half of 162000 ... as in 162000 nautical miles per
the 'theoretical maximum' speed-of-light, according to the work of Bruce
[See B. Cathie's book, "The Harmonic Conquest of Space"].
It is also apparent to me that the "162" decimal harmonic is an
of "Phi" ... 'The Golden Section' constant, of ... 1.618033989. This has
So ... 29 (deg) X 56 (min) X 49.87684729 (sec) TAURUS ...
= 81000 Taurus Grid LONG.
To get the "Jan.1st, 2000" 'snapshot-version' of the Grid POINT Value of
we form a ratio of its Grid LAT and Grid LONG numbers ... always larger
smaller ... 81000 / 15707.96327 ...
And ... 5.156620156 = (16.2 / Pi).
We "just happen" to have, here ... a direct and precise ratio of a "162"
decimal harmonic and the Pi constant ... as the precise Grid POINT Value
the Orion belt-star Alnitak ... on January 1, 2000. And Alnitak "just
to correspond, positionally, to The Great Pyramid of Giza !!
Next, I'll look at the star Alnitak in terms of testing it
meridian marker. That is ... we designate the Grid LONG of prime
markers as "360" ... instead of "zero", because we can't get anything by
using zero as a multiplier. So; now we simply use 360 as the
15707.96327 / 360 = 43.63323131. That is Alnitak's "Matrix Grid
Value", if you will. If this number is to be valid as a Grid POINT Value
then 43.63323131 must prove to be *intelligent* ...to "know where it is"
in relation to the Grid POINT Values of not only other prominent stars
Matrix' ... but also must prove to be 'intelligent', in a
evident way ... in relation to the Grid POINT Values of *other* prime
markers ... namely, The Great Pyramid of Giza on Earth and 'The D&M
of Cydonia on Mars.
Additionally, the number 43.63323131 should prove to be 'intelligent'
referential way ... in relation to the number 5.156620156 (as
43.63323131 X 5.156620156 = 225 ... the Square of 15.
As Richard C. Hoagland shows in his book, "The Monuments of Mars" ...
"225" decimal harmonic shows-up prominently in the 'geometry' of
One example is in the expression ... 19.5 / 22.5 = ('e' / Pi)
Of course, an angle of 22.5 degrees is precisely half of 45 degrees ...
in turn, is precisely half of 90 degrees. In terms of Radians (deg) ...
is (1/2 Pi) Radians (deg) ... or ... (1/2 Pi) X 57.29577951 = 90
azimuth of 90 degrees is in the "3:00 o'clock" position from true north
o'clock) ... but this "3:00 o'clock" position is *also* the "15 minute"
on the same clock-face. So there's the number 15, again ... the Square
of 225. As I mentioned earlier, I had been been talking about 'The Miami
on the Art Bell program of Feb. 4th, 1999. It turned out that I found
POINT Value of 'The Miami Circle' to be the Square Root of 15. One of
to finding the correct Grid POINT Value for 'The Miami Circle' was the
Richard C. Hoagland took readings with a GPS instrument ... at 90
difference, in terms of cardinal points, in relation to the center of
He gave me those readings over the phone, just a couple of days after
Art Bell program. It is worth mentioning, here, I think, that the number
symbolic number for "OSIRIS, re-membered".
Notice that ... 225 X 360 = 81000, which is my TAURUS Grid LONG
Alnitak ... its precise January 1, 2000 longitude 'within' the sign of
Munck (1991) found the Grid POINT Value of The Great Sphinx of Giza to
exactly 5400. Suppose we divide that number into 81000 ? ...
81000 / 5400 = 15 ... again !!!
Now, I'll divide ... 43.63323131 / 5.156620156 ...
= 8.461594996 ... a number which I don't immediately recognize.
What about its reciprocal ?
1 / 8.461594996 = 0.1181810286.
I *do* recognize 0.1181810286 ... as a decimal harmonic of the Grid
of the star Alpha Draconis, based on the "Astrolog Fixed Star List" data
and using the star Alnitak as prime meridian marker.
The star Alpha Draconis is very important, especially in light of the
of Laurence Gardner. [ See his books, "Bloodline of The Holy Grail" and,
"Genesis of The Grail Kings"].
Here are my calculations for Alpha Draconis ...
Grid LAT 66 (deg) X 21 (min) X 25.97402597 (sec) North ...
= 36000 North.
Grid LONG ... we first note its January 1, 2000 position "into" the
LEO (counter-clockwise) of ... 12 LEO 13' 27".
We then add-up its longitude arc-distance relative to the Jan. 1, 2000
of Alnitak. We have Alnitak at 29 TAU 56' 50" ... so ... the longitude
between those two positions is ... 72 deg 16 min 37 sec ... to the
arc-second. Multiplying ... 72 (deg) X 16 (min) X 37 (sec) =
I recognize that we will have a very significant Grid LONG of 42545.1703
if we make only a very tiny adjustment on the nearest-whole-arc-second
of 37. If we use ... 36.93157144 ...
72 (deg) X 16 (min) X 36.93157144 (sec) ...
= 42545.1703 E. Alnitak Grid LONG.
The figure 42545.1703 is a Grid LAT (Morton, 1998) at the site of
historical birthplace of Jesus Christ.
[ See my article at http://www.farshore.force9.co.uk/rennes.htm ].
If you go to my article there at that website, you will see how I found
POINT Value at Bethlehem of ... 65.656127 ... a precise decimal harmonic
of the Grid POINT Value of 'The Face' at Cydonia on Mars (Munck, 1991).
Now ... to find the Grid POINT Value for the star Alpha Draconis ... we
form the ratio of ... 42545.1703 / 36000 ...
As I said, this *is* a decimal harmonic of ... 5.156620156 /
There is a very direct connection between the figure 42545.1703 and 'The
King's Chamber' within The Great Pyramid of Giza. I found that the
width of The King's Chamber, in regular inches (not 'pyramid inches')
is apparently 206.2648063 regular inches. This is, in fact, the Square
42545.1703. I also recognized the number 206.2648063 as a precise
harmonic of ... 20626.48063 'Square Degrees' ... as in the standard math
we use for the "generic" Area on a Hemisphere. That is ... if we use the
(deg) as the 'given radius' ... we calculate the Area on a Hemisphere as
(2Pi) X "R" = Surface Area on a Hemisphere ...
(2Pi) X 57.29577951 = 6.283185307 X 57.29577951 =
This assumes "our" convention of 360 arc-degrees on one circumference.
Here is where I usually point-out to people that the work of Zecharia
has shown that "we" are apparently using the (360-degree) system handed-
down to us by 'The Anunnaki' ... The Elohim ... the so-called
gods and goddesses" of antiquity. In effect, I think a large part of our
discovery of advanced ancient knowledge" actually involves our
of the fact that "we" are ... essentially ... descendants of those real
blood people we have mistakenly labeled as "mythological". Those people
apparently ancestors of ours. The work of Laurence Gardner is now
us in considerable detail about the "kingship" factor ... a very key
lost and suppressed history as humans. So ... it is appropriate, in the
of Gardner's work, that 'The King's Chamber' within The Great Pyramid
"relate so closely" to the site of the birthplace of the historical
a "King of Kings". I think the "Royal Cubit" needs to be recognized as
20.62648063 regular inches.
[ See my article at http://www.farshore.force9.co.uk/mat_11.htm ].
POLARIS ... THE NORTH STAR
Here are my calculations for Polaris ... again, using the same data base
as referenced earlier ... and using the same procedure ...
Grid LAT 66 (deg) X 05 (min) X 41.89090909 (sec) North ...
= 13824 North.
Grid LONG 03 GEM 49' 54" .... this then translates into ...
03 (deg) X 53 (min) X 4.025157233 (sec) E.Alnitak ...
= 640 E.Alnitak.
Grid POINT Value 13824 / 640 ...
Recall that we are using Alnitak *as* the prime meridian marker.
Notice that the Grid POINT Value of the star Polaris is apparently a
decimal harmonic of the POLAR circumference of Earth ... 21600 nautical
Here, I simply must ask ... what are the odds of this ?
Notice, also, that there are 21600 arc-minutes on one circumference ...
ANY circumference, according to "our" convention of 360 arc-degrees on
And, I mention that the Grid LAT of Stonehenge (Munck, 1991) is 21600
= 51 (deg) X 10 (min) X 42.35294118 (sec) North. Munck realized
were originally 60 stones on the circumference of The Sarsen Circle at
Stonehenge. Multiply those 60 stones by the 360 arc-degrees *on* that
and you get ... 360 X 60 = 21600 ... encoding the Grid LAT of
THE STAR SIRIUS ... ISIS
Grid LAT 39 (deg) X 36 (min) X 41.84884577 (sec) South ...
= 58755.77946 South.
Grid LONG 19 GEM 20' 47" ... translates into ...
19 (deg) X 23 (min) X 56.76206256 (sec) E.Alnitak ...
= 24805.02134 E.Alnitak.
Grid POINT Value 58755.77946 / 24805.02134 ...
Notice that 24805.02134 is a precise decimal harmonic of the Grid POINT
Value of The Great Pyramid of Giza (Munck, 1991) !!
Also notice that 2.368705056 is a precise decimal harmonic of the Square
of the radius of The Sarsen Circle of Stonehenge (Munck, 1991) in Feet
(48.66934411 X 48.66934411) = 2368.705056.
Now ... let's divide Polaris by Sirius ...
21.6 / 2.368705056 = 9.118906529 ... which is the precise Grid
Value of The Quetzalcoatl Pyramid at Teotihuacan in Mexico (Munck, 1993)
Earlier in this article (Part One), I mentioned that James Furia, a
researcher into the work of Munck, has noticed that the 3 main pyramids
Teotihuacan are layed-out in the SAME positional pattern (as seen from
view) as the 3 main pyramids of Giza ... and, as the 3 belt-stars of
viewed from Earth. Yes ... The Quetzalcoatl Pyramid DOES correlate,
positionally, with The Great Pyramid of Giza and with the Orion
according to this obvious pattern.
THE MOST RECENT NASA 'EVENT'
Very recently, an article appeared on The Enterprise Mission website,
discussing ... among other things ... a very intriguing relationship and
"timing event" involving the new International Space Station, the
the Orion belt-star Alnilam. [ http://www.enterprisemission.com/isis.htm
Alnilam is the "middle" belt-star in Orion. The article explained that
actually hooked-up with the space station just exactly at the moment
the star Alnilam was directly on the horizon, as seen from Earth if you
standing directly under the 'hook-up' ... at that moment.
This occurred on May 29th ... at 4:24 GMT. Now ... I will return to this
after I show you my "matrix" calculations for Alnilam :
Remember, too, that we are still using Alnitak as the prime meridian
Now ... for the star ALNILAM ...
Grid LAT 24 (deg) X 30 (min) X 46.0016965 (sec) South ...
= 33121.22148 South.
Grid LONG 28 TAU 43' 35" .... which translates into ...
01 (deg) X 13 (min) X 14.986014 (sec) W.Alnitak ...
= 194.818182 W.Alnitak.
Grid POINT Value 33121.22148 / 194.818182 ...
Now ... I counted the number of Days from May 29th to July
which is 36 Days. Why July 4th ? Because, for one thing, that is when
Pathfinder landed on Mars in 1997. For another thing ... it is the date
the American signing of The Declaration of Independence in 1776.
(That was also the apparent date of the formation of the Bavarian
Also ... July 4th of 1999 is 180 Days from ... January 1, 2000.
Also ... 180 X (Pi Squared) = 1776.528792 ... which has 3 important
numbers "embedded" within it ... 1776 ... 528 ... and ... 792. We know
1776 part. The 528 is a decimal harmonic of the number of Feet in a
statute mile ... 5280. The 792 is a decimal harmonic of the number of
statute miles of the 'average' diameter of Earth ... 7920.
The number 36 is a decimal harmonic of 360 ... the number of arc-degrees
one circumference. Also, 36 arc-degrees has a cosine of precisely HALF
Phi constant, or HALF 'The Golden Section' ...
COS 36 = 0.809016994 = exactly HALF of 1.618033989.
Notice that cosine of 36 = sine of 54. Recall that 5400 is the Grid
of The Great Sphinx (Munck, 1991). And 5400 is the number of nautical
of arc-distance on Earth from either pole to the equator.
The Grid LONG of the Bethlehem site (Morton, 1998) involves the number
04 (deg) X 03 (min) X 54 (sec) E.Giza ...
= 648 E.Giza.
[ E.Greenwich 35 deg 11 min 54.8 sec ].
The Grid POINT Value of Bethlehem (Morton, 1998) involves the number 36
65.656127 = 36 Radians (deg) / Pi = (36 X 57.29577951) /
Now ... getting back to May 29th of 1999 :
There are 36 days from May 29th to July 4th ... and 180 *more* days
to the end of this millennium, or 216 days from May 29th to January 1,
Of course, 216 is the Cube of 6 ... 6 x 6 x 6. And 216 is a decimal
of ... 21600 ... referenced earlier several times in this article.
If we divide 216 by 36, we get 6.
If we notice the "4:24" GMT of the docking event, we can divide 4 into
and get ...
6. If we multiply 4 times 24 ... we get ... 96, as in "STS-96".
NOW multiply 170.010936 ... the Grid POINT Value of Alnilam ...
times 216 ...
170.010936 X 216 = 120 X (Pi to the 5th power).
Now ... multiply 6 times 120 ... we get 720.
The number 120 is the azimuth (in arc-degrees) at one corner of a
equilateral triangle, assuming one of the corners is at due north. Of
equilateral triangle can be a 2-D representation of a tetrahedron. The
is the number of total corner-angle degrees on the surface of a
180 degrees on each of the 4 triangles on the surface ... 4 X 180 =
The "720" also refers, here, to the date of July 20th ... as in "07/20"
as in Day
Number 360 of the annual Mayan Haab Calendar cycle ... and, as in the
the NASA landings of Apollo 11 in 1969, and Viking on Mars in 1976. This
also the date of an interesting star alignment involving the Phoenix
in 1997, just 16 days after the landing of Pathfinder on Mars on July
Yes, and as RCH pointed out at the time, Pathfinder was even shaped like
tetrahedron. The Phoenix UFO (mass-sighting event) of March 13, 1997 ...
happened 113 days before July 4th ... 03 - 13 - 97 becomes 03 + 13 +
THE STAR REGULUS
The star Regulus is associated with "kingship" in
the Leo constellation.
Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock discuss this star, in relation to Giza
and in relation to the Orion belt-stars ... in the book, "The Message of
Grid LAT 27 (min) X 41.88790205 (sec) North ...
= 1130.973355 North ...
= 360 X Pi.
Grid LONG 05 LEO 05' 33" ... translates into ...
65 (deg) X 08 (min) X 42.93176771 (sec) E.Alnitak ...
= 22324.51921 E.Alnitak.
Grid POINT Value 22324.51921 / 1130.973355 ...
= 2Pi X Pi.
Recall the number 1776.528792.
This is exactly equal to ... 90 X 19.7392088.
FINDING 'THE D&M PYRAMID' ON MARS ...
... ANOTHER PRIME MERIDIAN MARKER
As I said earlier, if 43.63323131 is in fact a meaningful and
POINT Value for the star Alnitak, in terms of Alnitak being a prime
marker for the ecliptic ... it should demonstrate some impressive direct
mathematical connections to other prime meridian markers ... such as The
Great Pyramid of Giza. I will now show that this is the case. In fact, I
show that we can directly *find* the precise Grid POINT Value of 'The
Pyramid' of Cydonia on Mars (Munck, 1991) ... by specifically using the
POINT Values of The Great Pyramid of Giza, the star Alnitak, and ...
it is not known to be a prime meridian marker (as of this writing) ...
I now remind you of the *36* days between May 29th and July 4th,
very recent Shuttle/International Space Station rendezvous ... as
directly on the horizon, as seen if you were standing directly under the
at that moment. The star Alnilam corresponds to The Chephren Pyramid of
the middle pyramid of the main 3 at Giza.
The Chephren Pyramid's Grid POINT Value is 5764.166073 (Munck, 1991).
I now divide that figure by 36 ...
5764.166073 / 36 = 160.1157242 ... the original *exact* ratio of
volume of The Great Pyramid to the Square-Feet area of its base !!!
Now ... I will multiply this ratio ... 160.1157242 ... times my Grid
for the star Alnilam ...
160.1157242 X 170.010936 = 27221.42416.
I now will divide that figure by :
1) Grid POINT Value of The Great Pyramid (Munck, 1991).
2) Grid POINT Value of the star Alnitak (Morton, 1999).
3) Grid POINT Value of The Quetzalcoatl Pyramid (Munck, 1993).
Let's see what happens ...
27221.42416 / 248.0502134 / 43.63323131 / 9.118906529 ...
= 0.275810692 .... the Grid POINT Value of 'The D&M Pyramid' of
on Mars (Munck, 1991) ... divided by the Square of 10 !!!
This is ... 27.58106915 / 100.
Yes ... Munck has already established robust and redundant evidence for
a prime meridian through the center of 'The D&M Pyramid' of Cydonia on
I will end Part One of this intended multi-part series, here.
I hope you are interested in this work, and I hope you will freely
share this article with others. Thank-you ...
