The Sahara geoglyphs

Part 10. Symbol  Orientation. Octagon and Nonagon.

Among the orientations of SK symbols, corresponding to the angles of an octagon, the angle 112.5° prevails.

Symbol SK 6. Orientation 112.5°.

Symbol SK 557. Orientation 112.5°.

Symbol SK 803. Orientation 112.5°.

Symbol SK 348. Orientation 112.5°.

Symbol SK 906. Orientation 112.5°.

Symbol SK 807. Orientation 112.5°.

Symbol SKR 13. Orientation 112.5°.

Symbol SK 339. Orientation 112.5°.

Below are two symbols, whose orientation we have already considered. These are the symbols S 941 and S 1026. The orientation of the southeast beam of symbol S 941 corresponds to the pentagram angle of 144°, and the same beam of symbol S 941 is oriented along the hexagram angle of 150°.

Geoglyph S 941

The northeastern beam of the symbol S 941 corresponds to an octagon angle of 45°.

Геоглиф SK 1026

The northeastern beam of symbol S 1026 also corresponds to the octagon angle of 45°.

Geoglyph S 1250

The southeastern beam of symbol S 1250 corresponds to the octagon angle of 135°.

Geoglyph S 1563

The southeastern beam of symbol S 1563 corresponds to the octagon angle of   157.5°.

Geogllyph SKM 379

The orientation of symbol SKM 379 corresponds to the octagon angle of 67.5°.

The two images below show the orientation of symbols of the SS type corresponding to the angles of octagon.

Symbol SS 1021. Orientation 22.5°/202.5°.

Symbol SS 1167. Orientation 45°/225°.

The following image shows a rectangular object AS 41, two sides of which are oriented according to the angles of octagon 22.5° and 112.5°.

Next, we turn to the orientations that correspond to the angles of a 9-gon — nonagon. Among these orientations, the angle of 100° prevails.

Symbol SК 942. Orientation 100°

Symbol SК 189. Orientation 100°

Symbol SК 1016. Orientation 100°

Symbol SК 39. Orientation 100°

Many other types of geoglyphs that have straight elements are also often oriented according to nonagon angles. The images below show a couple of typical examples.

Geoglyph S 252

Both beams of symbol S 252 are oriented to the angles of nonagon 60° and 160°, measured from the direction to the north. Thus, the angle between the rays is 100°. Moreover, the northeastern ray also corresponds to the hexagram angle of 60°.

Symbol SКМ 200

The orientation of the direct element is close to the azimuth of 100°.

In the next part, we are going to consider the azimuths of the directions between individual symbols.
