Mayan Light Beam Photo: Message from Gods, or iPhone Glitch?

When Hector Siliezar visited the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza with his wife and kids in 2009, he snapped three iPhone photos of El Castillo, a pyramid that once served as a sacred temple to the Mayan god Kukulkan. A thunderstorm was brewing near the temple, and Siliezar was trying to capture lightning crackling dramatically over the ruins.

In the first two images, dark clouds loom above the pyramid, but nothing is amiss. However, in the third photo, a powerful beam of light appears to shoot up from the pyramid toward the heavens, and a thunderbolt flashes in the background.

Siliezar, who recently shared his photographs with occult investigators, told Earthfiles.com that he and his family didn't see the light beam in person; it appeared only on camera. "It was amazing!" he said. He showed the iPhone photo to his fellow tourists. "No one, not even the tour guide, had ever seen anything like it before."

The photo has surfaced on several Mayan doomsday discussion forums. But was the light beam a sign from the gods - a warning about Dec. 21, 2012, the date that marks the end of the Mayan calendar cycle, and when some people fear the world will end? Or is it simply the result of an iPhone glitch?




If this is a glitch it is one damn cool glitch.

I wonder if he just happened to catch it at the exact right moment for the light to be reflecting up and out the pyramid? Really the Mayans were smart and the pyramid where the shadows make a staircase show it.


Anyway, glitch or real this is one of the coolest non Photoshopped pictures I have seen in a while and I cannot wait to hear what others think about it.

Any thoughts?

That's Two words... Dodge being the first, Tool being the second.



Tineye only finds the same image, so it's not someone just grabbing an image of google images etc and playing with it...

but yeah, i'm inclined to walk softly on this. too good to be true, too easy to not be.
