I caught the end of a program on the History Channel that was talking about Venus' relation to the Maya . What I got out of the last five minutes is the Maya tracked Venus really well and this may have something to do with the time when Cortez landed in Mexico and conquered the Aztecs (They picked up Astrology from the Maya). Venus eclipses or transits the Sun in pairs of eight years apart unless one is a near miss. The last eclipse happened in 2004 CE. The next eclipse is on June 06, 2012 CE. Some people say that the Mayan long count calendar will end in December 2012. Does anyone know if there is a link to the skies and the end of the Mayan Calendar? Here is a spreadsheet that can be used to calculate where Venus eclipses will occur depending on location without having to do any math. You have to have at least Excel 97 (or equivalent program) to use it. All you have to do is put in Latitude and Longitude. There is a worksheet in it that has the coordinates for several large cities.
If anyone knows or has heard of any Astrology or Astronomy relative to this I would appreciate the input. Did the movie 2012 point to anything that is relative to this?VenusTransit2.xls
