Very interesting find...I remember gazing at an aerial view of pyramids in Giza, wondering why the 3 weren't aligned in a straight line--it was years later when I read that they were aligned according to the stars in Orion's belt. As soon as I read it, knew this must be the answer....Now I wonder how many other ancient constructs feature this same alignment...and what's up with Orion?
A line from Orion's belt to Sirius will point to where the Sun will rise on the Winter Solstice

... it's not surprising that Orion's belt would catch peoples' eye, then and now. It's probably the most striking asterism in the sky.
