Kokino Observatory, Macedonia’s Ancient Aliens

Dating from the Bronze Age, this astronomical and archaeological site is located in the north-eastern of Republic of Macedonia, close to the village of Kokino. Although the site was discovered in 2001, it is believed that is 3.800 years old. The geology of the area made the site perfect for observing the stars and moon and their movements. The people used the volcanic rock around to track time, and it’s how they made the lunar calendar.

The reason we publish this is to acknowledge Kokino more as of important value for the history of one civilisation, and so did U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration, as they named it as the fourth most significant astronomical heritage site in their “Timeless Knowledge” project, The others just below are Stonehenge, England, Abu Simbel, Egypt, and Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

You can watch a short documentary about this site of great historical value here:

 

“Kokino” calendar was made of 12 lunar years containing 12 lunar months each, with six of them winter months of 29 days and six summer months of 30 days; the remaining 7 lunar years included 13 lunar months: six winter months of 29 days and seven summer months of 30 days.

Other great reasons to visit this beautiful ancient country is the small cities that have kept the spirit of the Macedonian etno tradition. Bitola, the second largest city in Macedonia is also known by its historical name, Manastir, meaning Monastery, and “the city of the consuls” since the Ottoman Period. Here lies the remains of the ancient city of Heraclea Lyncestis, where you’ll  find the greatest mosaics you’ll ever see, and an ancient theatre and roman baths, where very vividly is presented the life of the ancient Macedonians.
