Well, they are rarely discussed even though they are known for their amazing knowledge of the Sirius B companion star and Saturn and Jupiter before any European discovered it. I think they deserve more attention than the Egyptians for a change as some white astronomers and anthropologists are still amazed as to how they knew about these three things before them.
I think you mean the moons of Saturn and Jupiter, as those planets are visible to the naked eye and well known to many people.

I suspect that rather than thinking the Dogon were Egyptian, that they were influenced by Egyptians, or if earlier than them, by the Saharans, whose society stretched east-west for 3000 miles. They were associated with astronomical monuments such as that discovered at Nabta, a small henge 1000 years older than "Stonehenge" in England.

There are indications of Saharan origin for some of Egyptian culture. The Saharans were the people ancestral to modern West Africans, as they migrated south into West Africa when the Sahara dried.

The Saharan, called African Aquatic by anthropologists, is just being uncovered. Little is yet known, but what is known is amazing and indicates complex and advanced culture in Africa before Egypt (in addition to those of Nubia and Ethiopia).

Amaru, did it never occur to you that it is absurd to speak of Moorish Hebrews? LOL... I wondered when the Black Hebrew hate cultists and the Moorish hate cultists would get together... and I guess it's happened at last.

Who else are you besides Moors and Hebrews? I lost track... oh yeah, Choctaw, Olmecs, Phoenicians, Arabs... who else now?

"They (the Dogon) also knew that the Moon is a dead planet. For generations, the priests teach that the Milky Way is driven by a spiral movement, which includes our solar system."
