The Mayan culture is one of the most important ancient cultures in the world, dating from 2500 BC. and it is known that the first settlements occurred in the region of Guatemala. Subsequently they move to Mexico, carrying out the construction of large cities in the classical period (from 300 to 900 AD), such as Chacchoben, Palenque, Calakmul, Dzibanché, Cobá, Chichén Itzá, among others. As for astronomical knowledge, the Maya developed it through observation and were able to know and realize that everything in the sky was cyclic, that is to say that the different movements of the planets were repeated after each given time; knowledge that served them for the construction of their 17 different calendars, such as the solar, lunar, short account, long account; as well as the calendar of Venus. We know that the Maya were obsessed with the observation of the heavenly bodies, since they thought you were their own gods and tried to communicate with them or predict what they needed, in order to feed them, otherwise the gods could die and the world would perish . According to the Maya the creation event took place on August 13, 3114 BC, when the gods created the mountains, the sky, the animals, the plants and the man who was going to worship them. In their worldview, the Maya thought that the universe was divided into 3 levels: The sky with 13 strata with 13 different deities, the earth in a flat, square and with 5 cosmic paths, which rested on the back of a giant crocodile and finally the underworld with 9 levels, ruled by the lords of the night.
