Me and a couple of dozen people were witnesses to an incredible spectacle in the surroundings of the Temple of the Bi Headed Serpent, at Tikal.
It was 5:00 a.m., and I was in the 4th temple with about 12 people, while the others were in the park nearby.
Suddenly the sky lightened up completely when we saw a bright sphere, bigger than the moon and totally white.
It crossed the sky from one side to the other and disappeared instantly, leaving a long trace behind itself, a luminous trail in the sky which we could see for about 3 minutes. Some of us even managed to take photos.
