It was December 1st, 1999, when me and a couple of dozen people were witnesses to an incredible spectacle in the surroundings of the Temple Of The Two-Headed Serpent, at Tikal.
It was 5:00 a.m. and I was in the fourth temple with about 12 people, while the others were in the park nearby. The sky lightened up completely when we saw a bright sphere, Twogger than the moon and totally white. It crossed the sky from one side to the other and disappeared all of a sudden, leaving a long trace behind itself, a luminous trail in the sky which we could see for about three minutes. Some of us even managed to take photos.
