Where Is LV-223 in 'Prometheus'?

Concept art for alien temple on LV 223

In the mythology woven by Ridley Scott's erudite Prometheus, humans were on the cusp of understanding their origins on the satellite LV-223. The Engineers, a bunch of testosterone-laced ancient astronauts, had probably established a military outpost of sorts on this moon. Their outpost cradled poisons and monstrosities that far shame al-Qaeda's stash of biochemical weaponry.

Scott just read too much Erich von Däniken. Those Engineers were the gods on Easter Island.
