This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that will culminate in the closest approach between two planets in recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tug's on Mars & perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth in the last 5,000 years, but it may be 60,000 years before it happen's again. At the beginning of August when the two planet's are closet, Mars will rise, at nightfall and reach it's azimuth at about 3 a.m. By the end of August when the two planets are closest (august 27th) Mar's will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30 a.m. So mark your calender at the beginning of August to see Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month.

I realize this isn't Egypt but getting this info and then researching lead me to this site: You guy's should check this out! As primitive and getting back to Egypt that we will probably ever see in our lifetime's. http://www.crystalinks.com/draco.html

I've heard about the Mars thing. I've got to remember to look into that.

*runs off to mark it on my calender along with the upcoming Nefertiti show*

You guy's got to scroll down and click on the highlighted green Dogon Tribe.
It is in essense much like Egypt was in day's gone by; without royalty as their leader's.
Simply amazed, I was, to find it on the computer.
