At dusk on 21 March and 22 September, days before the start of spring and fall equinoxes, in the north stairway of the Castillo de Chichen Itza a solar projection of a Serpent of LIGHT appears consisting of seven inverted triangles of light. It is is formed as a result of the shadow cast by the nine platforms of the pyramid, which get the sun.

Later, the shadow gradually moves towards snake-shaped head located at the bottom of stairs.
The vision is of a serpent god Kukulkan, the most important deity of the Mayas, who descends slowly from the top to the bottom of the pyramid. This view is approximately 30 to 40 minutes, moment when all gathered there waiting to receive cosmic energy and recharge it.
