Fort Huachuca Rock Art near Tuscon Arizona marks Aquila in the Ancient Survey of the Americas by Astronomy - LexiLine Journal 318

In his December 27, 2004 article "Tribal rock art offers clues to religious beliefs of old" at

Paul Allen of the Tucson Citizen writes about rock art on a mountain ledge near Fort Huachuca, about 70 miles southeast of Tuscon, Arizona, near the border to Mexico.

The article has a photo by Tanja Linton of one of four large eagles (each about 4 feet from wingtip to wingtip) painted on this rock face.

The rock face also has a figure in colored skirt and headdress on it, together with a serpent extending about twelve feet across the rock face, with the head at the figure's hand.

Based on our decipherment of Hueco Tanks near El Paso (also on the border to Mexico) - which is nearly due East of Fort Huachuca - as marking Serpens Caput in the ancient survey of the Americas by astronomy, Fort Huachuca then marks the stars of Aquila (the Eagle) and Serpens Cauda in this ancient survey.

Obviously, the four eagles mark the Eagle, Aquila, also perhaps representing each of the four major stars making up the diamond-shape of this stellar shape.

The serpent at Fort Huachuca will surely mark Serpens Cauda. The motif of eagle and serpent for this part of the heavens is also prevalent in the Old World. (See Richard Hinckley Allen, Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning under "Aquila".)
