"Maya Skies" - This introduction to ancient astronomy and cosmology tells us how the Maya studied the skies, invented their calendar, aligned their buildings with the movements of the sun, and learned to predict the movements of Venus and solar eclipses from their observatories in the jungles of Mexico. A view from space clearly explains the seasons, the solstices and the equinoxes. An animated segment tells the story of the Hero Twins from the Popol Vuh, with ties to the heavens and the birth of corn as the basis of Maya life.
