The Sighthill Stones face destruction
Sign the petition below to stop Glasgow council scrapping the Sighthill Stones, the first meaningful stone circle to have been constructed in the modern age, by the Scottish Astronomer Duncan Lunan.
In 1973 Duncan Lunan reported to the British Interplanetary Society that he had identified and deciphered a hidden radio message sent by an alien space probe, caught but overlooked in the late 1920s by a collaboration of Norwegian and Dutch researchers. Lunan maintained that the putative message came from an object at the L5 point in the same orbit as the Moon, sent by the inhabitants of a planet orbiting Epsilon Boötis.
He concluded the message was “Start here. Our home is Upsilon Bootes, which is a double star. We live on the sixth planet of seven, coming from the sun, which is the larger of the two. Our sixth planet has one moon. Our fourth planet has three. Our first and third planets each have one. Our probe is in the position of Arcturus, known in our maps.”
