DTM-generated profile of the horizon to the ENE and E as seen from Lo‘alo‘a Heiau. The horizontal bar indicates the heiau’s principal direction of orientation. The darker yellow line indicates the rising path of the sun at the June solstice; the lighter yellow line indicates the rising path of the sun at the equinoxes; and the blue line indicates the rising path of the Pleiades in AD 1600.
