I thought that this group might want to add this obscure bit of information to the list of ancient celestial tracking efforts. I don't automatically assume that anything is the final proof but I lend some weight to the NSF and USNO in the credits. I didn't check the 13 listed written references from 1932 to 1979 but it's a nice list.
Except for the remote location, the mass of the slabs, the time spent on this by credible people, and the lack of any monentary gain, i can't come up with any good arguments that these weren't made the year before the paper was written.
For me it all totals up to "Humm. Maybe the Pueblo Indians did the same sort of things that the Stonehenge folks did. Neat. That's what you get when there is no TV."
I'll admit that the "lunars" part was a bit in the smarty pants realm but it made a shorter title.
