This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile15719/Goseck-circle.htm>Goseck circle</a></b><br><br>The Goseck circle consists of a circular Henge-construction with a diameter of 75m in the district of Weissenfels in Saxony-Anhalt. The reconstructed observatory was opened on the winter solstice, 21 December 2005, with great pageantry, including a spectacular fireworks display.<br />
There are now two concentric wooden palisades, each 2.5 metres high, as well as a ditch and an earthen wall. The 2,300 oaken poles were erected on the same site over a seven-month period.<br />
The first evidence of human settlement is from the Neolithic period. The Goseck circle is dated to approximately the 5th millennium BC.<br />
It was discovered by aerial photographs from the 1990s and, since 2003, regarded as the oldest observatory in Europe. <br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/684931Clipboard05.jpg>

It's the correct spot. Actually you can see the circle if you zoom in to approximately 300 meters. You can actually see the overlay has to be turned clockwise a little to the left.
