Mayan Archaeoastronomy

Time:

In a feast of colour and sound, Mayan Archaeoastronomy: Observers of the Universe takes the audience on a tour of six Mayan temples, San Gervasio, Chichen Itzá, Uxmal, Edzná, Palenque and Bonampak. Dive into a Mayan world of knowledge and learn about the importance of the orientation of the temples in relation to the movement of celestial bodies like the Sun, the Moon and Venus.

Mayan Archaeoastronomy: Observers of the Universe is the first movie for full dome viewing, completely animated and made in Mexico. It is narrated in four languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese. The film was financed by the National Council of Science and Technology of Mexico, and produced by Frutos Digitales with the support of the European Southern Observatory (ESO).
