My first thread, so bare with me.

A 15 year old from Quebec has made a correlation between the stars above with the position of the Mayan cities below. And using that correlation, has discovered a lost Mayan city.



William Gadoury, a teenager from Saint-Jean-de-Matha in Lanaudière, became a small launch to NASA, the Canadian Space Agency and the Japanese Space Agency, while his discovery is about to be disseminated in a scientific journal. Passionate Mayan for several years, he analyzed 22 Mayan constellations and realized that if he connected on a map the stars of the constellations, the shape of each corresponded to position 117 Mayan cities. No scientist had ever found such a correlation between the stars and the location of the Mayan cities. The genius of William, however, was to analyze a 23rd constellation. It contained three stars and only two cities matched on the card. According to his theory, so it should be a 118th Mayan city in a remote and inaccessible location in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.


The source is in French, so I had to use google translate.

Pretty amazing for this young man ! And what an amazing discovery !



Analyses from satellites in different space agencies have revealed that there was indeed a pyramid and thirty buildings at the precise location identified by the young man. The Journal had access to satellite images which we see different structures of what may be an ancient city. "Geometric shapes, such as squares or rectangles, appeared on these images, forms that can hardly be attributed to natural phenomena," says remote sensing specialist at the University of New Brunswick, Dr. Armand LaRocque. Not only he would have discovered a new Mayan city, but it would be one of the five largest. "When Dr. LaRocque told me in January, we distinguish a pyramid and thirty structures, it was extraordinary," said the young man. He named this lost city K'ÀAK 'CHI' or 'fire mouth "in French.


I wonder if this could be applied across the world to discover lost cities?



William Gadoury was interested in the Maya after the publication of the Mayan calendar announcing the end of the world in 2012. Teen found 22 constellations in a Maya Codex Madrid. By connecting the stars of the constellations to create forms and applying transparencies with the constellations on a Google Earth map, he found that this corresponds to the Maya cities of the Yucatan Peninsula. In all, 142 stars to 117 correspond Mayan cities. The brightest stars are the largest cities. In addition, the method used by William works with Aztec civilizations, the Incas and Harapa India.


Wish I could find an English version of this article.

Anyway, Thought I would share this because I feel it is a very important discovery.

I watched a show several years ago about the Mayan culture
They were keen star gazers ...
They could foretell the coming years rains by viewing the Pleiades and how clear or misty it appeared ata certain time of year.

The Milky Way was also very important to them ... not the stars within but the dark areas between the clustering stars
They pictured animals within the dark shapes ... such as Lama
The Heavens were mapped down ... on their lands ... each area/group tribe of a region wore corresponding designs within their beautiful costumes to identify them

Wow! In short, that's bloody amazing!

I would think if they could find a link world wide to other civilizations for me that would be proof that advanced peoples of the time had some form of communication and a common belief regarding the stars as building cities is not a 5 minute job.

Good on the lad, lets hope it leads to even bigger things and we hear more from him as the years and his research budget increases.

Can you imagine the kind of control someone had over the population to make cities happen in specific locations?

If anyone knows of any really good study material on this subject, please let me know by replying to this post or sending me a PM.

Thanks,

I really haven't found anything else on this, but I will be sure to share when I do.

They have many theories shared by a host reseachers, but this seems to be the most defininitive proof yet.

I know Scott Crieghton has a forum on here and he discusses the Giza Plateau pyramids as well as Graham Hancock with the connection to Orion.

Star & flag for you! Brilliant first thread, thanks for sharing


If constellations represent actual locations of cultural importance for Mayans (geographically projected onto terrestial maps), I wonder if other astronomically interested cultures might have done the same?

Very inspiring idea, gotta go now and check some locations in Egypt and Peru on Google Earth!

Pretty impressive for a 15 year old. Even more impressive that the Mayans could actually line up cities with constellations with such precision. We don't give the ancients nearly enough credit for their intelligence and ingenuity.

The new Lidar program "sees" through the j jungles overgrowth and hundreds of new sites have been discovered in south and central America. Add this new knowledge and we could find even more

Those Canadians. They love stars and stripes.

This means, the Mayans must have been darn good in mapping and land surveying too. There's no way one can shoot 117 cities to match constallations, if not having a good planning around all of it.

And that by itself is amayazing

People who have dedicated their lives to researching mayan civilisations must be devastated a teenager has out done them. They knew of the significance of stars and constellations. Crazy.

I don't speak French so until I see an English source and can verify it, I'd have to remain skeptical. If it's true however, it's mind blowing really. The astronomical/ancient building-link is something most archeologists ignore for the most part. Not because they find it irrelevant or don't care, but they just aren't trained in it. I was listening to a podcast the other day about something similar. The disciplines are so very narrow and specialized now, I think there is actually only one place that offers something in the realm of astro-archeology. Which really should be a greater focus.

Without getting too far down the woo path, there are some ruins throughout the world that haven't got much attention beyond people who are using pseudo-acheology to explore them, and as easy as it is to denigrate Stitchin for his work, it's much better if someone can just point a legitimate authority who has tackled the more mysterious cases which have open ended questions surrounding them. If there is none, well.... it only highlights what is needed to be answered.

I put together an OP on this topic, complete with quotes in French, translations, appropriate URLs, etc., in the format to post to the Breaking Alternative News forum. (Didn't know this thread existed.) Unfortunately there is some kind of coding glitch in the HTML under the "new thread" button for that forum, which doesn't allow one to POST the new thread.

Anyway, I am glad someone got this news up.

Robert Bauval, Anthony West and Graham Hancock will be keenly interested in this story, showing further indications of the relationship between ancient structures on earth and stars in the sky.

Sorry, didn't mean to steal your thunder. But ,yes, I do believe they would be very interested in this find.

You didn't steal it. You were hours ahead of me. Nice find for a topic. Congratulations. It's a wonderful story.

This is from the Journal de Montréal article, showing the location of the site. Close to the border with Belize.

Just kind of overwhelmed by the response. Maybe found my new home. I have many things to share.

The first English language version of this that I have seen is at the following link:

www.yucatanliving.com...


A fifteen year old from Quebec has used satellite photos, Mayan astronomy and his own intuition to solve some questions about the placement of Mayan cities and to discover a new city. William Gadoury loves everything Mayan and was studying Mayan constellations when he overlayed a constellation map on a map of the Yucatan Peninsula. He discovered that the known cities, like Chichen Itza and Uxmal, were exactly lined up with the stars in major Mayan constellations. Using this same map and thought process, he noticed that the third star in the 23rd constellation he was studying was missing.
