Hi all. A two point question if you can.

1)From anywhere on The Giza Plateau is it possible to see any other pyramids, specifically The Step Pyramid at Sakkara and if not can they both be seem from any point in between them. They are approximately 8.91 miles apart and a 6 foot man can see 3 miles to the horizon but the Great pyramid is 481 feet and The Step Pyramid is 200 feet so at the mid point (approx 4.55 miles) can both could be seen. Giza is about 203 feet above sea level while Sakkara is only 128 so that would give you +75 feet on The Giza Plateau.

2) If yes does anyone have any pictures of this ? Sadly Google failed me this time.

regards
