Is there something strange about the alignment of the skyscrapers in Manhattan? Something similar to the astrophysical alignment of Europe’s stone circles, like Stonehenge? Well, many have noticed this. Chief among them the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. He even coined the term “Manhattanhenge” to explain this similarity.

Most of these look aren’t that interested. But we rather like the last shot with the classic UFO.
In secret, this summer, a group of archeologists uncovered something startling. In an area about a mile from Stonehenge they found evidence of another stone circle. This circle was smaller than Stonehenge, consisting of only 27 stones in comparison to Stonehenge’s 56 stones; and constructed early than Stonehenge.
Researchers are calling this new site Bluehenge, a reference to the type of stone (Preseli Spotted Dolerite) used which has a bluish appearance.
This discovery calls into question the full purpose of Stonehenge as these researchers believe Stonehenge and Bluehenge were used in concert.

From National Geographic:
Given away by strange, crop circle-like formations seen from the air, a huge prehistoric ceremonial complex discovered in southern England has taken archaeologists by surprise. A thousand years older than nearby Stonehenge, the site includes the remains of wooden temples and two massive, 6,000-year-old tombs that are among “Britain’s first architecture,” according to archaeologist Helen Wickstead, leader of the Damerham Archaeology Project.
For such a site to have lain hidden for so long is “completely amazing,” said Wickstead, of Kingston University in London.
Archaeologist Joshua Pollard, who was not involved in the find, agreed. The discovery is “remarkable,” he said, given the decades of intense archaeological attention to the greater Stonehenge region.
“I think everybody assumed such monument complexes were known about or had already been discovered,” added Pollard, a co-leader of the Stonehenge Riverside Project, which is funded in part by the National Geographic Society.
