June 21, 2017 -- Summer Solstice
On the summer solstice, the sun rises just over the structure’s Heel Stone and hits the Altar Stone dead center.
Some shots from my Peru trip. Intipunku, or the Sun Gate. Great views from a high altitude, 2,720 meters (8,924 feet). I do not think it has anything special for the Summer Solstice.
The “Temple of the Sun,” or Torreón, has an elliptical design.
A rock inside the temple could have served as an altar. During the June solstice the rising sun shines directly into one of the temple’s windows, and this indicates an alignment between the window, rock and solstice sun.
Two $20 wins ! Plus a $1 win from the Mega.
