Maeshowe November 2000- January 2001

Maeshowe - Flashing observed on 31 January 2001

The sunset was observed on 31 January 2001 from the entrance of Maeshowe, and as predicted by both Victor Reijs and Ewan McKie, and agreed my Charles Tait, the sun skimmed the slope of the Cuilags, disappeared into the knuckle between Cuilags and the Kame of Hoy and then reappeared for a few moments below the west side of the Kame. Thus in addition to the reappearence on the North side of the Ward Hill about 20 days before and the Winter Solstice another "reappearance" has now been proven to take place at Maeshowe, about 40 days before and after the Winter Solstice. This sequence of events seems very unlikely to be fortuitous, and implies that the position of Maeshowe is planned in a very accurate manner.
