Is this final proof of the dire Mayan 2012 prophecy? Most likely not.
But it is a totally sweet light beam shooting out of the top of the Mayan city of Chichen Itza. It was taken by a tourist who was trying to capture a lightning strike in the distance. Two picture were fine, the third, is what you see in the video.
Experts say it’s clearly an artifact in the picture. Which is probably right. And boring.
