Canada – A Teenager Links Between Constellations and Position of Mayan Cities


William Gadoury, a teenager from Saint-Jean-de-Matha in Lanaudière, became a small sensation to NASA, the Canadian Space Agency and the Japanese Space Agency, while his discovery is about to be published in a scientific journal. A Passionate Mayan for several years, he analyzed 22 Mayan constellations and realized that if he connected on a map the stars of the constellations, the shape of each one corresponded to position 117 Mayan cities. No scientist had ever found such a correlation between the stars and the location of the Mayan cities. The genius of William, however, was to analyze a 23rd constellation. It contained three stars and only two cities matched on the card. According to his theory, so it should be a 118th Mayan city in a remote and inaccessible location in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.

Analyses from satellites in different space agencies have revealed that there was indeed a pyramid and thirty buildings at the precise location identified by the young man. The Journal had access to satellite images which we see different structures of what may be an ancient city. “Geometric shapes, such as squares or rectangles, appeared on these images, forms that can hardly be attributed to natural phenomena,” says remote sensing specialist at the University of New Brunswick, Dr. Armand LaRocque. Not only he would have discovered a new Mayan city, but it would be one of the five largest. “Since Dr. LaRocque told me in January, we distinguish a pyramid and thirty structures, it was extraordinary,” said the young man. He named the lost city K’ÀAK ‘CHI’ or ‘fire mouth “in French.

William Gadoury was interested in the Maya civilization after the publication about the Mayan calendar announcing the end of the world in 2012. Teen found 22 constellations in a Maya Codex Madrid. By connecting the stars of the constellations to create forms and applying transparencies with the constellations on a Google Earth map, he found that this corresponds to the Maya cities of the Yucatan Peninsula. In all, 142 stars to 117 correspond Mayan cities. The brightest stars are the largest cities. In addition, the method used by William works with Aztec civilizations, the Incas and Harappa in Asia.
