Tourist Silizar Hector came with his family to the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan? Did a mobile phone camera three photos of a step pyramid El Castillo, which was once the temple of the god Kukulcan Maya Maya. Next to the temple was brewing storm — and Hector Silizar tried to photograph lightning over the ruins. One of the photos clearly shows a column of light coming from the top of the pyramid in the sky.
Hector Silizar showed unusual photos occult followers who saw it as an omen of doom.
At the same time, Jonathan Hill, a researcher of cosmic phenomena, from Arizona State University, who participated in the development of cameras for NASA missions to Mars, I'm sure that a column of light in the photo traveler — no more than a distortion of the image.
However, the news of the unusual photo quickly spread on the Internet, which caused even greater surge in the popularity of the famous El Castillo (or Kukulcan).
This famous building in the ancient city of Chichen Itza is in the base of a square, and its height is 23 m in the vernal and autumnal equinoxes (March 20 and September 21) at about three o'clock, the sun's rays illuminate the western balustrade of the main staircase of the pyramid so that light and shadow form a picture of seven isosceles triangles that make up, in turn, the body of a snake length of 37 m, "crawling" as the movement of the sun to his own head, carved in the base of the stairs. The sight is so mysterious that every day in the fall or spring equinox, thousands of people here are going to see it for themselves.
