Stonehenge is now looking to hire a general manager

Not to sure how hard culmination is and if it is a goto system or not.

Was looking it up as a comparison, Stonehenge is about 33 meters in diameter - compare that with the recently approved Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) at Mauna Kea!

On a side note, probably one of the largest (if the not the largest) collection of astronomy-specific naked-eye observatories still standing would be the Jantar Mantar - some picture of the site from google image search - it's on my to-visit-one-day list.

First thing I'd do would be to have all those darn rocks moved out of the way.

Aren't those the counterweights?
