The glory days of the Oracle of Amun is back. Are you off to Siwa next month?

Am I the last to know?

"Confirmed: New discovery at the Amun Oracle Temple in Siwa Oasis, Egypt! The Source In The Sahara's Dustin T. Donaldson and Robynn Iwata spent a full year watching the slow-moving behaviour of the sun's rays across an inner sanctum wall deep in the Amun Oracle at Siwa Oasis, Egypt. Ultimately, on only two days a year, 6 months apart, the light beam, which is allowed into the building by a small high outside window, moves into perfect alignment with another very special opening even deeper inside the structure—the window to the holy sanctuary of the god Amun!

Throughout the course of the year, the proofs of the find—which has been hiding in plain sight for probably at least 1,600 years—were documented. This includes the first ever photograph of a human being lit by the Sun through the Equinox-related, double-window alignment (In the glory days of the Oracle it was the Amun statue itself in this position).
