Chichen Itza Spring Equinox March 20, 2011
As opposed to the winter solstice.
Very rare opportunity shot. 2+ minute video is of the descent of Kukulkan/Quetzalcoatl on the steps of the pyramid of El Castillo in Chichen Itza. What makes it rare is that all seven diamonds appear and no clouds interrupt the transition.
The Shadow of the Equinox: What do.
The Mayans succeeded in an almost impossible mission with the completion of their structures at Chichen Itza. A poetic combination of form, style, function, religion, philosophy, mathematics and geometry. A true symbiosis of all of their intelligence and art in one location, to be studied and admired by all that visit. By far the most impressive aspect of the Pyramid of Kukulcan is it's relationship with the sun and how it reflects the equinoxes and solstices of our solar year with stunning accuracy.
