An Aztec Solstice
Although there is considerable disagreement with my conclusions I am happy to show the Summer Solstice at the Aztec creation known as Carl DiCapo Fountain. Only one week per year does the sun strike the face of the water marvel reaching its peak illumination on this day each year. Constructed approximately in 400 BCE (the brickwork dates it) the fountain/waterfall/sacrificial pond thingy was the earliest use of electricity in the New World.
