Hello,

I read Dieter Doericht'comment (2003). In his opinion the disk was fastened to a shield or the like. I was in Vienna to look at the disc (nature-historical museum). I am -because of the holes- also of the opinion, the disk was fastened to a shield . But in the museum it was explained that the disk was set up in the grave, without wood or leather. It cannot have been fastened to a shield because otherwise traces of wood (by the decaying of the wood) would have been in the grave. It can be naturally also coincidence and it is just as fell in that way as the leather belts at the sign decayed.

Hello,

Where are(were) the Plejades during the equinoxes?



Spring:

If one wants to see the Plejades just before they go down, they have to be at an angle of 5 degrees over the horizon and the sun has to be 15 degrees below the horizon. On which date is that the case? In which direction? At which moon phase?

If one turns on a star chart the Plejades 5 degrees on the Western horizon and the sun 15 degrees below the horizon, the date scales points to mid-end of April. If one takes the precession of the Earth of 3600 years into account, it should be the beginning of March. This is a very important date for agriculture. The moon is increasing , only the sickle in the West is seen.



Fall:

If one wants to see the Plejades just before they go up, they have to be at an angle of 5 degrees over the horizon and the sun has to be 15 degrees below the horizon. On which date is that the case? In which direction? At which moon phase?

If one turns on a star chart the Plejades 5 degrees on the Eastern horizon and the sun 15 degrees below the horizon, the date scales points to mid-end of October. If one takes the precession of the Earth of 3600 years into account, it should be the beginning of September. This is a very important date for the preparation for the winter. The moon is full.

So all import things are shown: the Plejades, the moon and the moon sickle. So the disc is a calendar. (31.7.2006)I donít the stars are very important.
