Andrew Collins: Discovery Beneath The Pyramids 1/2 [Video]
The Three Pyramids of Egypt aligned both to the Orion's belt and to, and more accurately, the constellation of Cygnus. The big star Deneb in the tale of the Swan is where the entrance to the underground cave is, the existence of which was denied until recently by the Egyptian Supreme Council of self-appointed "experts," located underneath a bird temple, where numerous mummies of birds where found, at the north-west side of the Giza Necropolis, leading to the Great Pyramid, as an emergency escape route perhaps. Google surface penetrating satellite imaging has also confirmed it.
The three pyramids are aligned so that when the three brightest stars of Cygnus were rising at the spring equinox becoming visible right at the top of all three pyramids, making it look like they had a bright light set atop. Hence the three wise men with slight variations in sizes and alignments along with the appropriate the rising of the phoenix metaphor.
