For the ancient Egyptians, the Sirius star played the most important role. Their calendar was sophistically based on the rising of Sirius. The ancient Egyptians often associated Sirius with the goddess Isis, especially in its capacity as a signal that the Nile flood was on the way. The star could also be connected to Osiris, as well as Anubis and the goddess of Sirius, Sopdet, whose name means “she who is sharp.” She brought fertility to the soil and was the consort of the entity known as Sah, the constellation Orion.
One can see around 2,500 to 3,000 stars from a total of 5,000 visible stars with naked eyes. In many ancient myths, religions, and cultures, the stars are often associated with mysteries and the history of mankind. Planets and stars influenced a lot our ancestors to study human nature, and future predictions which in turn influenced us.
Around 2,400 years ago, Astrology originated in Babylon far back in antiquity, with the Babylonians developing their own form of horoscopes. If we look in the night sky, many stars are dimmed and not clearly visible but due to its brightness, twinkling and color-changing properties, it sometimes prompt people to report Sirius as a UFO.
Author Robert K. G. Temple writes in his book “The Sirius Mystery” as follows: “We know that the ‘companion of Sirius’ is, in reality, Sirius B. It is conceivable that Osiris-as-Orion, ‘the companion of Sirius,’ is a stand-in for the invisible true companion Sirius B.
The oldest and simplest form of the name’ of Osiris, we are told, is a hieroglyph of a throne and an eye. The ‘eye’ aspect of Osiris is thus fundamental. The Bozo tribe of Mali, related to the Dogon, call Sirius B ‘the eye star’. Since Osiris is represented by an eye and is sometimes considered ‘the companion of Sirius’, this is equivalent to saying that Osiris is ‘the eye star’, provided only that one grants the premise that the existence of Sirius B really was known to the ancient Egyptians and that ‘the companion of Sirius’ therefore could ultimately refer to it.

The meanings of the Egyptian hieroglyphs and names for Isis and Osiris were unknown to the earliest dynastic Egyptians themselves, and the names and signs appear to have a pre-dynastic origin — which means around or before 3200 B.C., in other words, 5,000 years ago at least. There has been no living traditional explanation for the meanings of the names and signs for Isis and Osiris since at least 2800 B.C. at the very latest.
‘The Dog Star’ is a common designation of Sirius throughout known history. The ancient god Anubis was a ‘dog god’, that is, he had a man’s body and a dog’s head.”
The author further stated that according to Greek philosopher Plutarch, “Anubis was really the son of Nephthys, sister to Isis, although he was said to be the son of Isis. Nephthys was ‘invisible’, Isis was ‘visible’. (In other words, the visible mother was the stand-in for the invisible mother, who was the true mother, for the simple reason that the invisible mother could not be perceived.)
Plutarch said that Anubis was a ‘horizontal circle, which divides the invisible part … which they call Nephthys, from the visible, to which they give the name Isis; and as this circle equally touches upon the confines of both light and darkness, it may be looked upon as common to them both.’
This is as clear an ancient description as one could expect of a circular orbit (called ‘Anubis’) of a dark and invisible star (called ‘Nephthys’) around its ‘sister’, a light and visible star (called ‘Isis) — and we know Isis to have been equated with Sirius. What is missing here are the following specific points which must be at this stage still our assumptions:
(a) The circle is actually an orbit.
(b) The divine characters are actually stars, specifically in this context.
Actually, Anubis and Osiris were sometimes identified with one another. Osiris, the companion of Isis who is sometimes ‘the companion of Sirius’ is also sometimes identified with the orbit of the companion of Sirius, and this is reasonable and to be expected.”
Ancient Egyptians portrayed Isis-as-Sirius in their paintings as travelling with two companions in the same celestial boat. According to some astronomers, there are companions of Sirius: Sirius B and Sirius C.
To the Arabs, a companion-star to Sirius (in the same constellation of the Great Dog) was named ‘Weight’ and was supposed to be extremely heavy, even too heavy to rise over the horizon. ‘Ideler calls this an astonishing star-name’ as we are told, not surprisingly.
The true companion-star of Sirius, Sirius B, is made of super-dense matter which is heavier than any normal matter in the universe and the weight of this tiny star is the same as that of a gigantic normal star.
There are many divine names and other points in common between ancient Egypt and ancient Sumer (Babylonia). The Sumerians seem to have called Egypt by the name of ‘Magan’ and to have been in contact with it.
The chief god of Sumer named Anu was pictured as a jackal, which is a variation of the dog motif and was also used in Egypt for Anubis, the dog and the jackal apparently being interchangeable as symbols. The Egyptian form of the name Anubis is ‘Anpu’ and is similar to the Sumerian ‘Anu’, and both are jackal-gods.
The famous Egyptologist Wallis Budge was convinced that Sumer and Egypt both derived their own cultures from a common source which was ‘exceedingly ancient.’ Anu is also called An (a variation) by the Sumerians. In Egypt, Osiris is called An as well.
Remembering that Plutarch said that Anubis (Anpu in Egyptian) was a circle, it is interesting to note that in Sanskrit the word Anda means ‘ellipse.’ This may be a coincidence. Wallis Budge said that Anubis represents time. The combined meanings of ‘time’ and ‘circle’ for Anubis hint strongly at ‘circular motion.’
The Egyptians used the name Horus to describe ‘the power which is assigned to direct the revolution of the sun’, according to Plutarch. Thus the Egyptians conceived of and named such specific dynamics, an essential point.
Dogon and Sirius
The Dogon as well, as we know, say that Sirius B is ‘heavy’ and they speak of its ‘weight’. For the Dogon, the sky and everything connected with it is of great importance. Dogon myths say that the sky was created by God Amma (also called Amen). He also created the first living beings on Earth. They are known as “Nommo.” These very first inhabitants of our planet were ethereal spirits. However, they are sometimes described as amphibians, hermaphrodite, fish-like creatures. They are often referred to as water masters, observers, and even teachers. (Сlick here to read full article)
The Dogon claim that the Amma created these creatures in the distant past. They explained that the Nommo were ancient astronauts who came to Earth from the Sirius star system 8.6 light-years away.
And this fact confuses science. How do the Dogon know such cosmic facts? There are two options. The earth was indeed visited by alien guests. Or there was some highly developed civilization on Earth in ancient times, and all the Dogon knowledge came from it.
