China has deployed forces there since it fears Turkey is using the area to host Pan Turkish extremist minorities from Western China. They also see this as an opportunity to get their foot in the door in the Middle East to promote their wider regional agendas.

Turkey may deflect criticism of its support for Sunni extremists in Idlib by blaming it on Saudi Arabia and Israel, whom they will claim are using supply networks in Lebanon controlled by Sunni extremists seeking sanctuary there.

The Clinton-Obama shadow government will do what it can to continue illegally supporting Turkish efforts backing anti-Assad militias in the Idlib region.

Let us see if it ends in stalemate, like eastern Ukraine.

Here I examine the various glacial erratics and other anomalies found along a ridge leading up to the Gungywamp Site. Brian Ghilliotti

Brian Ghilliotti: Here I speak out against evidence of expanding suburbs into an undisturbed land area near at public water reservoir area on state land. The only thing separating the state land where the public drinking water reservoir is located from the proposed development area is a single dirt road, which will probably be paved if things go ahead. The pond I refer later in the video is Pameacha Pond in Middletown. Please also see: https://imgur.com/gallery/KQgwvii

Here I find a strange alignment of stones in a due south direction. Brian Ghilliotti

I walked past the stone cairns and noted this massive cliff edge stone. I did not have enough battery power left to record it. It has a horizontally oriented stone, at the same height, propped up by leaning against the main rock you initially saw. You might be able to see this backend stone toward the upper right hand corner of the stone image. Like it was thinly sliced downwards towards it back end, as if it were a pice of cheese. Quarrying? Would have been a massive pain in the ass to take any stone chunks down from that elevation. Brian Ghilliotti

I discover another alignment of stone cairns that seem to be aligned with the corner of the stone wall enclosure that I recently explored, designated with a glacial boulder and a small stone pile placed on top (see previous video). Brian Ghilliotti

I explore more stone walls in the area, and wonder why would anyone want to wall off extremely rocky land and could not be developed without modern earth moving equipment (and I hope it never does get developed). Also spot more stone piles. Brian Ghilliotti

Did a colonial farmer decide to be an artistic landscaper? Or was this here before, and some kind of effigy? I also find evidence of modern stonework. Brian Ghilliotti

I proceded to the boulder that I identified as possibly be associated with observing Saturn. I then took an azimuth reading of the other cairns and glacial boulders that seemed to be in alignment with it, and got a reading of 45 degrees. I could not find and significance to 45 degrees, I did determine a back azimuth of 225 degrees. I looked up data associated with Jupiter.

Data suggests that obverting the alignment from the back azimuth perspective of 225 degrees, we will see Jupiter at its point in the sky during the last month before it becomes invisible with an altitude of below zero. This suggests that this was a harvest indicator.

I take another azimuth reading from the "glacial" erratic placed near the top of the small hill toward a prominent "glacial" stone in the distance, and get an azimuth of 195 degrees. It is in alignment with other stone cairns that I noted before on the way through the area.

I have a wild theory, this alignment might be used as a guid post to measure the path a Saturn.

Saturn seems to be at the height of its horizontal altitude toward the end of summer, but to the left. As the first month of fall begins, it starts to decline, moving further to the right, going past the 195 mark within a week (starting 8/31, as data suggests). Brian Ghilliotti

I continued past the second set of paired stones and make my way to the glacial erratic at the lip of a small hill summit which I showed earlier during my evaluation of wall types found on the site. The azimuth between the second set of paired stones and the boulder I advanced to is 141 degrees.

Data suggests that "glacial" stone placed on small hill was more likely used to monitor moon's movement in relation to this stone specifically during the summer months. We see that as summer moves forward, the moon's initial horizontal azimuth will appear closer to the horizon scape where the stone is located. The closest it gets is on 2018/07/24, where altitude is16 44 15. By the end of next month, it quickly starts moving up again, hinting the end of summer. Brian Ghilliotti

I continued past the pair of glacial erratics, and after following a 135 degree azimuth, I discover yet another pair of glacial erratic stones. Again I am not certain of the significance of 135 degrees. I took an azimuth reading at the exact middle of the boulder pair, there could be a difference plus or minus 5 degrees. The only thing of significance that I found for this alignment was centered on the azimuth of 130 degrees:

As winter began the rising sun would move closer and higher away from the left stone; as winter receded, it would initially rise to the left and closer to the horizon.

As for lunar significance, I obtain the following data:

The pattern that emerges is the mid cycle moon will initially appear going lower and lower in horizontal altitude toward the boulder pair, which I estimate has a degree span of 130-140 degrees. It gets to it lowest point at July, or mid summer, then rises up again. In December the mid cycle moon does not have a horizontal appearance within the degree span of the boulder cluster. This is when the sun is used with this would cluster to determine the progress of winter. Brian Ghilliotti

I noticed a large glacial erratic 180 degrees due south of the perched stone, and walk towards it, going across more cairns and odd stone features on the way. I noticed this glacial erratic before on the way to discovering the perched stone, but I did not initially see its alignment significance. I also note how many of these glacial erratics seem to come in pairs, like Adam and Eve...Brian Ghilliotti

In this video I explore features about the perched stone. I take an azimuth reading of 185 degree for the alignment between the dolmen and the glacial stone behind it. I do not readily see a significance behind it, other than it could have been a way to observe the patterns of Mars. At 185 degrees, Mars, moving right to left, starts to lose its brightness:

The video cover shows how Mars would appear as it moved nightly in the sky, left to right, becoming more faint as it moved right. If the original inhabitants of this site recognized Mars as a sacred celestial object, this could have been a way to determine how fast the summer was progressing, with the perched stone feature at the 180-185 degree mark, and the planet becoming fainter as is moved to the right. No idea of the significance of 109 degrees. Brian Ghilliotti

The closest significance I can see for 109 degrees is the following data set for the moon:

It seems as if the moon has an horizonal azimuth point each month in the summer that moves to the right of the stone wall promination that i observed.

I investigate an alignment boulder behind the perched stone, and discover the possible remains of a stone cairn. Brian Ghilliotti

Here I discover a large-sized perched stone at the edge of an elevation drop off, a pattern I have seen consistently. Brian Ghilliotti

Here I examine more stone walls, and wonder what was being partitioned off and why, as most of the land consists of glacial till. Brian Ghilliotti

Here I explore various types of stone wall contractions, stone cairns, and boulder pairs. I get the impression that this was a ceremonial complex that was later occupied by settlers, and probably not for long. Brian Ghilliotti

Here I discover a large cairn, which I missed the first time I was here, by the trip-boulder system that could have been used to track Venus or the Moon during various season periods. Brian Ghilliotti

Here I note the positions of three strangely placed glacial stones. I see many cases of stones that have been closely placed side by side with distant stones placed in the between them. In this case I took an azimuth reading of the distant stone and noted an azimuth bearing of 165 degrees. This was taken standing between the two stones in the front. There is nothing significant I could readily find about 165 degrees and its back azimuth of 345 degrees. I used one moon azimuth calculator and got the following data for azimuths close to 165 degrees:

Dtate Time Altitude Azimuth
2018/04/01 0:00:00 43 45 05 169 03 48

2018/11/24 0:00:00 66 11 55 161 16 06

It could be a lunar marker stone Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons, but it would not be easy to gage the moon's position given the evaluation behind it.

If you look at the two forward stones while sitting on the third rock, you will be observing astronomical activity from its back azimuth (165+180) of 345 degrees.

Brian Ghilliotti

I come across one of many glacial deposit stones that have been coincidently placed at the edge of an elevation drop off. One theory that has been put forward about placements of stone piles is that they were placed to represent the depictions of star constellations. In this case the three stones placed in a row behind it may represent the star constellation of Orion's belt, and the stone at the edge of the cliff could be one of the stars that make up the sword. One of the stones that formed the group of thee stones looks roughly like a dagger. Brian Ghilliotti

In this video I took an azimuth reading of the space created between the two split perched boulders, and obtained a reading of 210 degrees (back azimuth 30 degrees). I could not immediately significant about this reading. Brian Ghilliotti

Here I take a closer look at the perched stones on top of the rocky hill along I-395 South in Connecticut. I noticed that the smaller stone, or the "sister stone", is also perched. I took an azimuth reading of the two perched stones with the smaller stone placed in alignment toward the cliff edge, and got a reading of 310 degrees. The closest alignment of significance to this reading is 302.9 degrees, which occurs on June 18th to June 22nd. This is roughly the time of the summer solstice. If you noted previous photos, you would have seen the sun setting in an area behind these stones. This happens if you stand at the smaller stone and face the split boulder perched stones.

I continued beyond the aligned boulders placed on the finger of land, and discovered this isolated four foot long, shin high stone wall in the middle of nowhere. It makes no sense why this wall feature was constructed, unless it served as a defensive feature. Or perhaps a colonial or a Native American (during colonial times when they could get access to firearms) could have used it as a hunting perch. If so, I don't think there are many deers in the area now. Brian Ghilliotti

I went deeper into the woods beyond the rock overhang. I had to move quickly considering iPhone power. I just happen to come across yet another paired and aligned set of supposedly glacially deposited boulders on the top of a prominent local terrain feature. Too many coincidences for me.
