    New Discovery at Stonehenge

    The finding of a circle of trenches at a nearby ancient village also makes the site the largest prehistoric structure in Britain and possibly in Europe, one archaeologist said.

    Hypothetically speaking, if a large highly polished mirror was placed on top of Stonehenge where the center of the curved mirror was plumb to the exact center of Stonehenge and the light reflected straight up, what planets, stars and locations, from 4,500 years ago, would the beam of light from Stonehenge intersect?
    In 4,500 years how far would the reflected beam of light have traveled up to the current year of 2020? The range of the beam of light would reach out to galaxy J1149+2223. Located about 5 billion light-years from Earth, J1149+2223 is the most distant stellar object discovered by Hubble in 2018.
    What interstellar objects along with Sol System based locations would the beam of light have encountered in 4,500 years?
    The objects that the Stonehenge Beam has encountered in 4,500 years would become part of a new catalogue that amateur astronomers and astro photographers aim their rigs towards and take photos of.

    Houston, we have a problem...
    Not going to even bring up the issue of ... "where would they have gotten a large highly polished mirror" 4500 years ago...

    How far in 4500 years? 4500 light years.
    You want the light to intersect at 4500 light years, how about a mirror parabola with an f ratio of 45000000000000.
    The light will pass Neptune's orbit about 5 hrs
    The range of the beam of light would reach out to galaxy J1149+2223. Located about 5 billion light-years. Enjoy your 5 billion year wait.
