Fall Equinox, September 2011

Twice a year, the feather serpent god, known as Kukulcan makes his decent and shows himself for about 45 minutes down the side of the Chichen Itza Pyramid steps.

One of this days is the Equinox of Autumn, the archaeological sites where temples were built to mark the change of the seasons and perform fertility rituals are very crowded between the 21st and the 23th of September

Hitting the pyramid at the right angle, sunlight casts an undulating shadow on the side of a staircase each equinox. When the shadow aligns with a monumental stone head it seems as though the snake is descending right into it, there is a huge snake head at the bottom of the pyramid, and then there is Kukulkan.
