I had the extreme pleasure of attending a lecture about the astronomy of Baja California. The entire lecture was in Spanish and I was able to comprehend most of it. It always astounds me how the ancients recorded time and events. In pre-Hispanic Baja California, the indigenous people recorded a total solar eclipse that occurred in 1496. Cave paintings depict the people’s relationship with the stars and planets in a culture that is largely only known for its Aztec and Mayan calendars. Modern Mexican astronomers have great respect for their ancestors and it was a magical evening, seeing the old and the new coming together in harmony. If only we could all do that, allow the old to transform into the new without so much angst and arguments.
