Falcon Stone Externsteine Extern Stones

Figure 1:
The Falcon Stone (Falkenstein) marks Heaven’s Center [5]
(The Falcon Stone is located above the major group of Extern Stones).

Explanation of Figure 1
The star map above shows the position of the northern stellar poles in 3117 B.C. No star was found exactly at the position of the north celestial pole in this era. The weakly shining star Thuban marked the pole later, ca. 2800-2600 B.C. Since no such pole star was available in ca. 3000 BC, the ancients used the bright stars Kochab and Pherkad in Ursa Minor
as their "pole stars".

[5] This interpretation is based on a photograph found in Rolf Speckner and Christian Stamm, Das Geheimnis der Externsteine: Bilder einer Mysterienstätte, Urachhaus, Stuttgart, 2002.
