My much loved archeoastronomy site that I have been using for literally decades seems to now be defunct.
I’ve been looking for a site that offers both traditional dates and the actual moments and I think this one is best for my purposes.
Now I will need to go back through all my blog posts and tweak the links.
Vale, ArcheoAstonomy site, you have been a great source of information for me for a very long time.
All times are Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) – add 1 hour for Daylight Savings Time when applicable.

Exact dates and times are from http://web.archive.org/web/20221118010147/https://www.archaeoastronomy.com/2023.html – Equinox and Solstice data from the U.S. Naval Observatory, Washington DC. Cross-Quarter moments are interpolated as the midway points between the Solstices and Equinoxes measured in degrees along the ecliptic. Former NASA scientist Rollin Gillespie uses this spatial method rather than simply splitting in half the time interval between a Solstice and an Equinox.)
Yes, I too have been saddened by the loss of that most wonderful resource, Vale archaeoastronomy dot com. Beloved friend to many 🤍

I know the wonderful Glenys Livingstone from PaGaian Cosmology is looking into getting Scott’s site up and running again.
