Mysterious ancient stone formation in Australia is likely world’s oldest observatory. Researchers studying the site believe it dates back 11,000 years. 

 

If initial estimates prove correct, Australia may be home to the world’s oldest astronomical observatory.

 

A man-made rock formation of 100 blocks of basalt, located roughly 28 miles west of Melbourne, has been found to align with the equinox, the winter solstice and the summer solstice. Called the Wurdi Youang stone arrangement, the ancient site is believed to pre-date Egypt’s Great Pyramids of Giza and England’s Stonehenge, with some geologists and experts believing it was created more than 11,000 years ago.

 

Arranged in an egg-shaped circle with a diameter of 165 feet, the stone blocks vary in size from knee-high to waist-high.
