Two astronomers. Separated by only 22 degrees, 58 minutes of latitude, 33 degrees, 29 minutes of longitude, yet seemingly worlds apart. Their common goal: figure out the very nature of the Universe and its womenfolk.

Muhgrabi gate excavations

The above image was taken from the southestern most corner of the Kotel. Find a bigger version here. Visible is the wailing wall, the dome of the rock, the walkway, and the excavations. The distance from the excavation tents to the wall/mugrabi gate is about 30 m. Bear in mind that these two tents have caused world wide criticism, riots, multiple arrests and restraining orders, and have turned up evidence of a 10th century muslim prayer room.
