Comparison between the NE–ENE horizon here and at other upland Auwahi sites

DTM-generated visualizations of the horizons to the NE and ENE at seven upland Auwahi heiau, showing the rising position of the Pleiades around AD 1600 (blue line) and June solstice sun (dark yellow line). The rising path of the sun at the equinoxes (lighter yellow line) also appears in some of the profiles. (Graphics by Andrew Smith; colour version of figure 4.11 in the book)
