30 northern latitude

The Great Pyramid was built on the 30th parallel north.

From that position, the direct distances, measured in a straight line through Earth, to the geocenter and northpole are the same.

This fact can be visualized by a equilateral triangle placed inside Earth, with its corners at the geocenter, the northpole and on 30 northern latitude.
The precise position of the pyramid is 2958'51"N 319'0"E, only about 1,5km south of 30N.

Maybe its creators tried to compensate the amount of athmospheric light refraction under which some symbolically important star constellations appeared displaced in the sky.

However, this detail of the pyramid position is almost trivial in contrast to the next discovery...
