Mérida, Yucatán, (March 19, 2021).- The change from winter to spring, known as the equinox, will occur in Yucatán this Saturday, March 20, at 3:38 am, but the “descent” of Kukulcán (feathered serpent) can already be observed in the Chichén Itzá pyramid.
According to the Yucatecan astronomer Eddie Salazar Gamboa, the phenomenon can be observed since last Tuesday, March 16th.
“There is evidence that as of March 16, the seven triangles of light can already be observed in the Chichén pyramid, and the last day on which they will be visible is March 27”, explained the academic from the Technological Institute of Merida (ITM).
He stressed that this Saturday, March 20, in Chichén Itzá, the Sun will rise at 5:58 a.m. and will hide at 6:05 p.m.
Edie Salazar said that in Mérida the Sun will appear four minutes after emerging at Chichén Itzá, and two minutes later it will appear at Maxcanú, where it crosses the 90th meridian.
