A conclusive test is that the central point of all the “cones or funnels” of Moray is eccentric and has orientations according to an axis that goes from NE to SO, with an angle of a drop of 48 degrees, an unmistakable sign that all the impacts by objects that fell from the space following the same trajectory.
