|NASA'a Hand of God|
Seen only by the Hubble Satellite Telescope
Chandra -ray Observatory via Greenwich Observatory of England.
"An association which brings together death or sacrifice, stone knife, and hand is to be found in the Yucatec name for the knife which is: u kab ca (ku0 or "the Hand of God. (Scholes and Adams, 1938, 1:42)"It was not discovered until the Hubble Space Telescope found the nebula that they actually named "The Hand of God." It was a few months later that I found that this nebula could be found in the constellation Compass located near the South Pole over the Pacific Ocean. The strange part about the Maya and Mixtec information was that this nebula was seen by them in the center of the sky. It may be a further view of the Summer Triangle that was discovered in Peru, to be 90 degrees to the left (of a viewer), with Vega, its brightest star at the top.
North of the Equator Vega is to the right of the Milky Way within the constellation Lyra. while Deneb is at the top of that triangle created by Vega, Altair [in Aquila] and Deneb as part of the Northern Cross.***
Nor did it make any sense at first until the lowered trajectory of the comet [Hunahpú] and Stela 22 of Izapa are taken into consideration as actual records of the fact that the sky did change its position even though the earth's orbit stayed the same except fot the extra days added by the earth's new lopsided spin.
The Persians saw the NASA version with an insignificant telescope that today would be a useless item if compared to our great observatories. Charlemagne in his Chapel also created a ceiling with the Hand of God surrounded by angel wings, similar to that of Cacaxtla. The Maya "square" symbol with the feet around it, probably indicates the path where this nebula was seen around the square world that they were aware of in the Yucatan.
