The Ancient Hopewell Road Aligned to the Bright Star Fomalhaut and the Constellation Piscus


The Hopewell Road was two parallel berms of earth about 3 feet in height and 200 feet wide. The road ran from the Octagon at Newark to Chillicothe, Ohio some 60 miles distant. The direction of the road was oriented 211° 25’ from Newark , Ohio Octagon to the Octagon at Chillicothe, Ohio

“At azimuth 211° 25’, an observer looking south-west with a flat horizon would have seen the bright star Fomalhaut, of the constellation Piscis Austrinus, setting in alignment with the road. Thealignment is optimal around 250 BC. At this date, Fomalhaut was setting at an azimuth of 211° 25’With an altitude of 1°
