William Gadoury of Quebec, Canada is the teen that claimed to have discovered a lost ancient city in Mexico through his observations of stellar alignments and satellite images when coming across a missing corresponding city in the Mexican jungles.
Gadboury has named the site: K’aak Chi, or Mouth of Fire.
In 2016, using photos from the Canadian Space Agency and Google Earth, Gadboury pinpointed the location in the thick jungle of Yucatan in Mexico.
The inquisitive youngster, who has a deep fascination with ancient Maya, analysed 22 Mayan constellations and realised that the Mayans aligned their 117 cities with the positions of the stars. (nzherald.co.nz)
The satellite images show traces of a pyramid shape, linear patterns, straight lines and sharp corners, which would be naked to the human eye under the thick foliage of trees.
His findings received harsh criticism from the scientific community, however Gadoury is still continuing his research, hoping one day to carry out excavations on the site which would cost an estimated $100,000.
Since this article has been published in June 2016, the speculated site is yet to be discovered on the grounds in Mexico.
As Above so Below.
I did not understand why the Maya built their cities away from rivers, on marginal lands and in the mountains… They had to have another reason, and as they worshipped the stars, the idea came to me to verify my hypothesis… I was really surprised and excited when I realised that the most brilliant stars of the constellations matched the largest Maya cities.

Similar to the Orion correlation theory, first put forward by Robert Bauval which claimed that the Pyramids of Egypt are a terrestrial map of the Orion Belt constellation, Gadoury searched for the potential Mayan city that would have mirrored constellations in the sky.

Note: it is possible that this city may have been built in pre-Maya times, since evidence suggests that the history of the civilization of the sun in the Americas is far older than suspected within the current mainstream historical narrative.
