    Back on 5 Feb, I wrote to Navlist as follows-
    
    ==================
    
    Frank sent the attachment -
    "stonehenge.stars.markedup.jpg" (included again here) with the comment
    "For what it's worth."
    
    And indeed, it's worth a good deal. I had been puzzling about how to create
    something like that, and Frank has kindly offered it up on a plate.
    
    I plan to email it to the Guardian, together with an attachment "northern
    sky view.gif", which superimposes my rough sketch of the Stonehenge picture
    on to a map of northern stars (from the almanac).
    
    Thanks to Frank, for filling in that picture; to Dave, whose identification
    of Vega, and other stars including Deneb, provided the key for unlocking
    the puzzle; and to Patrick, for identifying the sarsen stones.
    
    If anything comes of it, such as a further published correction, I will
    inform the list.
    
    ===================
    
    Today, the Guardian published a full response; rather more than I had asked
    for, or expected.  It's at-
