The Geometry of Giza (cont.)
By Edward G. Nightingale

To begin we’ll use a Quickbird Satellite © photo of the Giza Plateau that includes but is not limited to 9 pyramids and The Great Sphinx. Notice the orientation, West is at the top, going clockwise, North to the right, East toward the bottom and South to the left. To determine the center point we draw a line from South to North along the Western face of The Pyramid of Khufu, the great pyramid. This line also intersects the point at which the angled causeway leading to the Sphinx begins. Drawing a line from West to East bisecting the center of The Pyramid of Khafre we once again intersect the angled causeway leading to the Sphinx.
