It's been debunked unfortunately. Junk science.

Well hell...After I read your post Colly I was bummed but I couldn't find a reference anywhere to that effect. Got a link?


EDIT: Let me clarify that question Colly, the city doesn't exist? or the constellation orientation aspect?

You need Facebook at this stage Bear. Not sure if you have it, but here's the link to David Stuart's page, he's the most famous Maya epigrapher and all around expert. He says. "This current news story of an ancient Maya city being discovered is false. I was trying to ignore it (and the media inquiries I've been getting) but now that it's up on the BBC's website I feel I ought to say something.
The whole thing is a mess -- a terrible example of junk science hitting the internet in free-fall. The ancient Maya didn't plot their ancient cities according to constellations. Seeing such patterns is a rorschach process, since sites are everywhere, and so are stars. The square feature that was found on Google Earth is indeed man-made, but it's an old fallow cornfield, or milpa." I have a Maya geek in my family, which is how I get the inside info. https://www.facebook.com/david.stuart.520?pnref=story

Funny. I just looked at David Stuarts FB page and lo and behold the person I passed the link on for input is FB friends with David. Small world (the Maya world that is).
