See the Brit-Am Commentary to Isaiah 38:8
[Isaiah 38:8] BEHOLD, I WILL BRING AGAIN THE SHADOW OF THE DEGREES, WHICH IS
GONE DOWN IN THE SUN DIAL OF AHAZ, TEN DEGREES BACKWARD. SO THE SUN RETURNED TEN
DEGREES, BY WHICH DEGREES IT WAS GONE DOWN.

solar aberrations and late 8th century BC history
Thank you for posting your 16 Jun 2001 Orientalia 70:1 contribution
including the URL for Jeremy Goldberg's Biblica 80 (1999) 360-390 extensive
article: Two Assyrian Campaigns Against Hezekiah and Later Eigth Century
Biblical Chronology. I backed into this area several years ago pursuing
what could have made the shadows go backward for Hezekiah as reported in 2
Kings 20:8-11 and 2 Chronicles 32:24 and the possibility that it was related
to the third event Herodotus reported in book 2-142 wherein the Egyptian
priests had told him that in their history of human kings that the sun had
risen in the east twice and in the west twice.
A friend of mine in a book proposed a mechanism for this almost
incredible Herodotus reference which made sense and could explain the
backward moving shadow of Hezekiah and contended he that it occured in 701
BC and that this was the fifteenth reignal year of Hezekiah.
Quoting from his book:
"Assyro-Babylonian records recall that during the reign of Sargon
(722-705) there came into being a new world order, and then another one in
the days of Sennacherib (705-681) Winchler, Forschungen, III:300."
And evidently from the TRACTATE SANHEDRIN (96a) on the day King
Ahaz of Judah was buried in 714BC, the day was quickened.
This friend also thinks there was another change to the sun's
passage in 687 BC which he also links to the final battle of Troy because of
a quote in the Odyssey of Homer which seems to indicate that Odysseus was
confussed by an unpredictable sun. Quoting from THE ODYSSEY OF HOMER
(Harvard Classics vol 22 p 141 1909)
"Hear my words, my fellows, despite your evil case. My friends, lo,
now we know not where is the place of darkness or of dawning, nor where the
Sun, that gives light to men, goes beneath the earth, nor where he (it)
rises; therefore let us advise us speedily if any counsel yet may be: as for
me, I deem there is none."

stone circle found in Skane
Ancient remains including a 3,000 year-old stone circle and presumed place of
sacrifice have been discovered near
Vitemolla on Osterlen in the far south of Sweden. The site extends over two
hectares and is older and bigger than the region's celebrated Ale's Stones.
The site, presumed to date from the bronze age, is reported to be probably the
largest stone circle in the whole of northern Europe.
The find was made by Bob G. Lind, a private researcher and archeoastronomer,
The cult centre site is in the shape of a gigantic sun dial and includes a large
phallus symbol pointing due north. Lind explains that the stone sundial shows
the sunrise and sunset in connection with moments such as the summer solstice,
autumnal equinox and winter solstice.
Lind explained how he stumbled over the site while out walking with friends. He
later confirmed his instincts when flying over the area to photograph the site,
which is on land owned by the county council.
