The Pyramids from left to right are the Pyramid of Menkaure, the Pyramid of Khafre, and the Great Pyramid of Khufu. Therefore, the original picture was taken from the south, looking north. If there's any doubt regarding either the identity of the pyramids and the orientation of the view above, then simply compare the three smaller pyramids (the Pyramids of the Queens) seen above to their location in the map, and have your doubt dispelled.Furthermore, since the Pyramids are north of the equator, indeed, north of the Tropic of Cancer, then this view of them is impossible, as is any chance of an "alignment" with them: the ecliptic does not line up with the pyramids due not only to their latitude, but also because the obliquity of the Earth's equator with respect to the ecliptic is different from the obliquity that would be required for it to align with the pyramids: -Obliquity (actual): 23 degrees -Obliquity (required by orientation of the pyramids, approximate): 45 degrees.Also, ignoring this, the picture itself is impossible, since it is looking north, while the ecliptic is in the southern sky from this location, therefore BEHIND the observer. However, I don't think anyone would seriously dispute that this photo is photoshopped; merely it was meant to give the so-called alignment emotional impact.Brendan C.

So there Brendan, I must give you mad props on your dismantling of the above pictures, bravo! I just have one question, how has your vast knowledge of the Pyramids seemingly randomly lead you to a life of working in a Starbucks Barista at Target? I must know.
