The star and constellation illustration depicts the eastern horizon an hour before sunrise at 4:30am, on the vernal equinox of 2002 at the site of ancient Mesopotamia (present day Iraq). This illustration is a dynamic example of the largest and possibly oldest clock known. It does not record seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months or a year. It records the passage of an age of little less than 2160 years each. Research indicates that these constellations are informing us about which age we are in. The constellations are stating that we are in the Age of Aquarius.

It appears that the ancient astronomer-astrologers defined the zodiacal constellations so that the zodiacal constellation viewed just above the eastern horizon before the eastern sky turns blue from the approaching Sun on the vernal equinox (around 21st March each year) would inform the observer about the `time'. In this case the time is the ages that last for a little under 2160 years each. About 1,550 years from now, the Constellation of Capricorn (seen above and to the right of the Constellation of Aquarius) will replace the Constellation of Aquarius which will not be seen at that future time. It will then be the Capricorn Age.

The zodiacal constellations are the largest and oldest man-made clock known and they are a testament to the skill and insight of the ancient astronomer-astrologers that created the zodiacal constellations, most likely 3,000 to 4,000 years ago.
