Yes,I saw this story and its associated images.

It certainly needs a 'stretch' of mind to 'accept' this story based on the fragile data available.

But,the researcher involved does have a good track record .I'd like see the original artefacts he has discovered.

I'm sure our ancestors were into astronomy and,like ourselves today,could readily see the stars and Moon at night - probably more so without city lights and without TV etc to distract them !

as an aside ,when "scooping up" my cat in late evening, and if its a clear night sky,I always point her up towards the stars - just to see if she takes any 'notice' . I've never seen any reaction apart from a few months back when,with a fullish moon she seemed to gaze at it for a few seconds. But, I thinkit was because it was 'bright' - not the fact it was the Moon? Beyond that,she doesn't seem to gaze at the stars in the same way that I do. I often wonder whether other animal species on this planet take any real notice of the stars ? I'm sure some animals/birds use the Moon as a navaid but do they see and understand the night sky in the same way we do?
